Founded in 1850, Saroléa is one of the oldest motorcycle brands still manufacturing two-wheeled motorised machines.
In 1929 Saroléa was producing seventy-five motorcycles a day from its state-of-the-art factory in Belgium and was one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in Europe.
Just thirty-four years later the famous and the much-loved Belgian brand was no more. The ravages of the Second World War, and the economic struggles that followed, had brought the company to its knees.
Nearly half a century on, the rights to the brand were purchased by twin brothers from Ghent and the tentative steps towards a new motorcycling legacy were born.
