    Hello everyone...
    I came upon this site because an elderly gentlemen asked me to look up a motorbike for him and i am having trouble finding it.
    He said it is called a Zolex... It has a 2cycle engine and its front wheel drive...
    He also said its a pedal start.
    I hope the information i gave is useful
    Thank you for you time, Jackie

    Welcome. When I lived in Germany in the early 70's , pedal started front friction drives seemed common. My best friend had one. I thought it was called a Solex not a zolex but it was a long time ago and I'm probably wrong.

    EDIT: I just did a quick google on Solex+bicycle+engine and found them for sale. Five Flags Motorbikes in Pensacola sells them.

    EDIT: oops, Five Flags says unavailable. sorry
