Just in from Fred David, our regular correspondent in France: a three wheeled Solex! I haven't found any evidence that Solex actually turned out any three-wheelers, so I'm assuming that this is a home made job. Making a Solex three wheeler is relatively easy, as you don't need to come up with a new power transmission system. Both rear wheels can freewheel- although it's a good idea to have rear brakes.
Doing a quick Google search, I also found a few more three-wheel Solex conversion projects here and here.
