Salira Motorcycles


Historical Snippet

Manufactured: Aalst, Belgium

From 1955 until the early 1960s Salira assembled machines using Villiers engines of 98cc to 197cc capacity. They also offered a simplified configuration of the Lion Rapide 250cc JLO twin with tank, wheel rims and exhaust painted rather than chromed, thus lowering the price by a few thousand Belgian francs.

Their advertisements used the motto "Salira, de Volksmoto aan Volkssprijzen"

Models include:

A.150 1955 Villiers
Z.150 1955 Villiers
Z.201 1955 Villiers
A.201 1955 Villiers
L.201 1955 Villiers
S.250 1955 250cc JLO Twin
L.250 1955 250cc JLO Twin

After 1962 Salira built fuel heaters.

The firm was associated with Lion Rapide

    Images posted in comments, above. Engine number shows 890 (remainder obscured, but reads 890E), ID plate shows 36 890. So far no data on Villiers 890 has come to light.
