about moped history when they are first made there? thank you for
info. jim.

Depends on how you look at it. The first motor assisted bicycles where
made befor 1900. The Weber from which the solex was derived was there in
1878 I believe.
The mobylette was based on a similar device with a slightly higher cc
from the 1930s.
There are a lot of simple add on engines from the early days.
The first "real" moped tho' would be the solex in 1947.
