    VAP 630
    Can`t find a 630 here so I send a picture of mine. It`s under restoration after many years outdoors. I think this is the only one in Norway. Believed to be a 1952 model if it is the original and I belive it is. You can find some more
    information and other "knallerts" under restoration here:
    www.dieselbesta.com. It`s in Norwegian, but pictures can tell.

    Hi. I have just purchased a non running but complete Vap motorcycle.  It looks very similar to a solex with the engine over the front wheel.  The engine is marked as 'made in France' and I am told that they were actually made in Paris but other than than I have no information. Does anybody have any information on this please? Thanks Paul

    I see the book 'pourquoi pedaler' about vap4.
    Do you sell it or a copy.
