OK here goes: Belgium: Ludo, Norta, Diamant (not Dutch!), Boston, Splendor, Eddy Merkcx (sigh), Romany, Plum Vainqueur, Flandria, Superia (all these have true racing heritage!) Netherlands: Gazelle, Batavus, Locomotief, Jabo, Joco, Zieleman, RIH, Presto (Roy Schuiten attacked the world hour record on a Jan Legrand built Presto). Everyone of those names has at leats one world championship chalked up. Mor e obscure names: Peka, Huissoon, Cera (uncle of Jan Raas built them and still does), Remy, Sirocco, Visser Vainqueur, Verhoeven. The list goes on and on ... With Concorde I hesitate because although a Dutch firm, the frames were build in Italy. Yeah, a Benelux theme would be OK! Freek Faro, proudly owning a Visser and a Zieleman! Rotterdam Netherlands
