The wheels of these wonderful machines are often very damaged. According to the progress of the corrosion on the chrome, a polishing will be sufficient or rechromage will be necessary - if the state still allows it.
Thanks to the grease of the chain, the chrome of the pedalboard is often in better condition than the rest of the Solex. The plastic pads where the feet rest most of the time reflect the degree of use of the Solex
The restoration of the handlebar of a Solex is very similar to that of the wheels. The main point remaining chrome plating and adding to this the plastic handles and braking mechanisms.
