1952 Claeys (Flandria)
49cc Belgian cyclemotor
The 1952 Belgian Claeys cyclemotor is extremely rare. The first Claeys cyclemotor was a German Rex engine fitted to Claeys’ own frame, followed in 1952 by this model with their own engine. Its styling is very similar to the Velosolex which, by then, was selling well in Belgium, though the Claeys has a proper throttle control.
In 1953, the Claeys developed into a proper moped, with a frame-mounted petrol tank and two gears.
So this forward-mounted version is now very hard to find.
