Fuel Bottle

TO double the range of the VeloSoleX S 3800 a spare Fuel Bottle containing the correct pre-mix can be fitted as follows:

  2. Buy a suitable Fire Extinguisher Holder to hold the Fuel Bottle.
  3. Slide heat-shrink tubing over the holder arms or wrap some self-amalgamating rubber tape on to prevent scratching.
  4. Remove rear wheel.
  5. Drill two 6 mm holes in the frame down-tube to match the holes in the holder.

New Engine Lift Handle

THE rather basic Old Engine Lift Handle can be transformed to a New Engine Lift Handle by fitting a Car Gear Knob to the end:

  1. Using a small hacksaw, remove the black plastic knob from the end of the Old Engine Lift Handle.
  2. Enlarge Car Gear Knob hole with a 10 mm diameter drill.
  3. File the end of the Old Engine Lift Handle to 10 mm width so that it can fit inside the hole of the Car Gear Knob.
  4. Fill the Car Gear Knob hole with High-Temperature Epoxy Resin and press it onto the handle.
  5. Leave resin to harden for 24 hours or longer.

Wicker Basket

T HERE is nothing like a Wicker Basket to carry your bread, cheese and wine in! Most Garden Centres sell Wicker Baskets for picnics. I bought my 16" Wicker Basket - Oblong from the bicycle shop Cycles Of Yesteryear in Surbiton, Surrey, UK which was easy to secure on the Rear Luggage Carrier with black plastic Ty-Wraps at the front and rear as shown:
