RARE Solex S 3800 Lux Rouge


The Solex S 3800 Lux was made from late 1968 until 1971, featuring new colors, and gray seat, mud-flap, lift-out lever, air filter hood, fuel tank and flywheel hood. The engine headlight hood is the same color as the frame. The 1969-71 models have stainless steel fenders and whitewall tires.

We’ve been working on this and throwing new parts on it, so it’s even better than what the pictures show! (See build sheet below) It’s still a work in progress but it has a lot going for it.

No warranty on as is mopeds.

All vehicles purchased online will be held at our flagship store on Michigan Avenue.

Pick up appointments can be made through the Facebook scheduler.  

National shipping can be arranged through U-Ship at the buyer’s expense. We expect it to be $200-$300 depending on location.

About selling “as is” project mopeds:

Detroit Moped Works has always felt confident profiting from our wonderful work, selling refurbished or rebuilt mopeds that we could stand behind and sell with a warranty.  As a matter of principle, Detroit Moped Works has always been opposed to “flipping” mopeds, or making money off of selling non-running mopeds, project mopeds, parts mopeds, and/or “as is” mopeds. That said, due to what the media refers to as “these strange times” we are not able to get bikes built for sale this season. Further, we are repeatedly seeing “as is” mopeds selling on the peer to peer market for 2-3 times what we consider “Normal Market Rate.” For these two reasons we have decided to get some projects out of our shop and in the hands of folks who can hopefully get more bikes on the road. Most of these mopeds will be priced above what we consider “normal market rate,’ but below the high prices we are seeing as the “new normal.” In the time honored tradition of “flipping,” we will be giving the most brief description possible, not promising anything of the individual vehicles, but promising you that you will have a wonderful time working on and learning about your new toy motorcycle! Or maybe it just sits as wonderful decor in your Man Cave or She Shed. Once you buy it, it is out of our hands and yours to enjoy!  NO WARRANY ON AS IS MOPEDSAll vehicles purchased online will be held at our flagship store on Michigan Avenue.Pick up appointments can be made through the Facebook scheduler.  National shipping can be arranged through U-Ship at the buyer’s expense. We expect it to be $200-$300 depending on location.
