Solex is an older company that IIRC built carbs for Volkswagen and isn't in business anymore. They were either single upgrades from stock or dual carb set-ups. I had a set on my dune buggy but that was almost 20 years ago. They worked pretty good and were easy to work on. The company was sold/merged a few times so I don't know if they're around. Couldn't tell you about parts availability or interchangeability. I can tell you the 31-30 is too small for a single carb set up. It was meant for dual carb set up.

The old Opels used Solex also. When I had my 70 wagon its the first thing I did, toss the Solex and installed a Weber.

It 'might' be feasible, but without access to jets and thus the ability to re-jet it, I'm fairly certain you would run a bit lean and suffer some power loss starting around half throttle if not off the line. A lot of work to adapt it and find out it doesn't cut it.
