I haven't exactly hidden my admiration for the French SolexSolex (Click here to read more about the Solex Open link in a new window). It's not a motorcycle, not even a moped, but it's not a bicycle either. The classical design, made back in prehistoric days (1941), is simplicity in itself. The range and top speed of the vehicles is defined by how fast you can pedal.

Although production stopped 1988 (and restarted recently), an electric version is now available, and sits very high on my bucket list. And though you'll see Solex in the news on regular occasions, either in races, or in customization (see related articles below), here's one customization that has left me speechless.

A guy in France has made a hubless Solex. It's just to stunning for words.... for a pedal powered, engine assisted, vehicle that is. Of course it's not a motorcycle, even not a scooter, but that is the whole issue.

He started out with this:

Solex Hubless

.... and turned it into this:

Solex Hubless

Solex Hubless
