The front-engine, front-wheel drive 49cc VeloSolex was churned out in huge numbers, over EIGHT MILLION to date, starting in France, but in various other places since. I own one, (now there’s an admission !). Only about one bhp, no gears, no clutch, no suspension, but around 200 mpg, so probably cheaper than shoe leather ! As mine was made before January 1st 1973 it is also classed as a “Historic Vehicle”, so road tax is zero-rated, and insurance is very cheap. They deserve greater acclaim, and if you live in an area without steep hills they are great for pottering around the lanes on a nice warm sunny day.
