    Just joined; looking for help in restoring our 1959(?) VeloVAP moped. Would like to hear from other VV owners/riders.

    Hi Dave,

    Yep, that's it, plus or minus a couple of years. Ours is the powder blue finish - like the attached photo, but with a valuable patina of iron oxide.

    Looking for tires, and not as easy as it sounds with the current tire markings indecipherable, but the inner tube marked "23x2.00". Not something you can just take to the local bike shop and replace.

    Anyway, thanks for hosting this great site. Looking forward to picking up some great information.

    Welcome aboard!
    Look up Continental tire online. I checked for 23"X2.25" for my moped wheels- they carry them...
