A Brief History of the Marque
The factory was at Zedelgem, near Bruges, and they also had a French facility at Route de Deûlémont Warneton (Nord).
Flandria models included Amazone, Galet Luxe 2T, Velomatic, Floride 49cc, Princesse, Caravelle, Mirage, Comet, King, Parisienne, Sportif, Ultra Sport, Atlas and Record. There was also JLO 250cc twin.
Sources: Cyclememory.org et al
The Flandria was one of the biggest motorcycle, moped and bicycle companies in Belgium. It was a Claeys family business but they made a lot of other things (stoves, children's three wheelers, buggies, invalid
cars, scooters and even a prototype car. There came a split in the family business with a new marque Superia all from the Claeys family. They delivered all over Europe, also the north of Africa and USA. Information
is easy to find on sites of Dutch and Flemish collectors, and you'll find specialities in our museum
or mail me.

Vintage Flandria 10 speed bicycle
Flandria ladies bicycle
I have a vintage Flandria ladies bicycle 10 speed made in Belgium with Samir Samimox wheels and Simplex shifters and Dia-comp brake levers and Olimpic 70 super calipers. The head badge has a spread wing bird like the one on the Flandria Motor Cycles. A Phoenix I believe. I can not find any information on the original Flandria Bicycles, only the newer bicycles after the company was reborn after 20 years the original company closed. I have enclosed a picture of this bicycle and hope to find its approximate age and value. Can you help me? Thank You. Charley

Flandria baby strollers
I have come upon an antique baby stroller which has the Flandria symbol on it. I am trying to find a website with information on this stroller. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Attached are 4 photos of the baby buggy. Hopefully, someone will know something about this buggy or stroller. Thanks for your help
Was wondering what you thought of the photos I sent you? I think the stroller is unique and seems to be in the 1960s style from the decal on the front of the body. I will be curious to see if anyone responds to the postings. I wonder if there is a town historian that could help with some research.
Thanks for your help, talk soon.

Just a snippet of information . . .
There was a Claeys Flandria moped featured in the weekly road test section of Cycling and Mopeds magazine (UK) in about 1957. This appeared to be a moped, built up to the size of a scooter by pressed steel panels and able to carry a pilllion.
Keep up the good work !

Hi, I found this site looking for information on a Flandria 10 speed racing bicycle just salvaged from a scrap yard. The components are all either French or German, so at this point in the dissection it is only the frame that is marked Flandria and that is painted on. It is a nice paint job on the frame. I'm guessing this bike is from the 1970's but have little more than gut to base it on. Just thought to pass this bit of trivia on incase it is of any consequence to you. Happy trails, Rob -- r..lloyd at sympatico.ca

Beste Flandria vrienden,
De Flandria site is verhuisd. Voortaan te vinden op http://users.pandora.be/flandriaclub
De site is inmiddels bijgewerkt, en bevat nu, naast bouwtekeningen van Flandria motoren, ook de eerste fase van een "Flandria museum".
Kom nog maar eens een kijkje nemen...
Dear Flandria friends
The Flandria site has moved. It can now be accessed at http://users.pandora.be/flandriaclub
The site has been updated too. It includes a Museum section, as well as some exploded view diagrams of Flandria engines (check out the "Techniek" page in the Dutch language section).
