The History of Chelsea’s Flanders Motorcycle

A small group of CAHS members will tell with pictures and stories the fascinating, multi-part history of the formation of the Flanders Manufacturing Company, its production and role in Chelsea history, and how this rare and valuable motorcycle has come home to Chelsea, where it was built in 1911. The Flanders motorcycle will be on display during the presentation. Elliott Andrews, Jac Brown and Nick Cosco will be our presenters and they will introduce Art Farley in whose honor the bike is being donated to the museum.
