The Golden Era of Belgian Motorcycles


Last May, during the Vintage Montlhéry Revival, I had a chance to meet the Belgian crew from the Moto retro club of Famenne Ardenne. We took time around a Trappist beer to discover three of the best Belgian single bikes ever. A FN(Fabrique Nationale) 500 M67 type from 1930, a Gillet Herstal 550 "Compé-Client" from 1929 and a Sarolea 50, 245 type from 1929.

Enjoy !

Thanks for the beer to Vincent Derdeyn Rider of the Gillet Herstal
