Moped Malc was on the Black Box Television thingy in colour!
Series 2 Episode 1 in September 2017 "Find It Fix It Flog It" on Channel 4 Television had myself Moped Malc helping with items for the show
Many of you hopefully will have watched it. I am sure that it may be repeated in future if you missed it!
Renowned enthusiast Henry Cole and Antiquity lover Simon O'Brien made a visit to see me Moped Malc and took away a Velo Solex for restoration. I hope the show sparks some more interest in the smaller machines and helps get a few more restored/saved.
Many of you may know that I have been trying hard over the past number of years to supply parts for mopeds mainly from the sixties, seventies and eighties. Hopefully the show will have revived a bit of interest in the Moped scene.
There were many early bikes briefly shown such as the Mobylette, Motobecane, Peugeot, Raleigh, Velos Solex and Honda mopeds.
Its is amazing to think how popular some of the mopeds were:-
Velo Solex for example now have links to being pictured with Bridget Bardot, Steve McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Shed and Buried, Find It Fix it Flog It, and of course not to mention even Mr Bean!
