Solex Pli-Solex 5000- 1974


The Pli-Solex is the folding version of the Solex 5000. The frame folds in the center, and the handlebars, seat, and engine may be removed to allow for easier transport or storage. While most Pli-Solexes came in orange, as seen here, they also came in a light blue color.
