Re: It was probably a SOLEX...quite popular and reliable. French product. *Link*

Velo-Solex sold the "Add-On kit" which could be installed on ANY bicycle. You peddle the bike to get a little forward motion and push the engagement lever that you spoke of....and off you go. These kits added on a light weight bike could get 120-150 miles per gallon cross country.
