Red Star

Manufactured in Bruxelles 1902-1905

Although some sources say that they used BSA 291cc engines, it is more likely that they used Minerva 211cc units due to the involvement of Paul Kelecom with the company, and that they also built their own.

The engines evolved rapidly: from 2 hp in 1902 to 2½ hp in 1903 to 2¾ hp in 1904. Touring and sports models were built which had controls on the handlebars, a quite advanced feature for the day.

Gamages of Great Britain sold these machines under their own name.
