Some parts are easy to get, others very hard.
The Solex still (or again) is in production, most engine parts fit the
older models too.
Solexes are produced in China and Hungary, and maybe in some other
countries too.
Michelin France still makes the special 19 (23) inch front tyres.

Parts which I am sure will fit:

Gas-pump membrane
Piston
Bearings
Gaskets
Brake rubbers
Gas-pump (slight modification)
There are some very specific do's and don'ts about Solex mopeds, be sure to
use a good manual..

Cheers,
