I'd think any pen with a Sheaffer-type feed (such as the Kims) could be fitted with a flex nib, from FPR or Noodler's, and function as such. Or you could get some of those European vintage pens with flex nibs. You could even try it with a standard feed, and maybe dig out the channel and grooves a little.

I've found that the #6 flex from FPR goes into my Indian pens just fine. I currently use it in a Wality 71J with the stock ebonite feed. Works great.

I picked up a FPR Guru a few months back when it was on offer with their flex nib, I found it to work almost identically to the Noodlers Nib creaper. I say almost identically because I found it worked a bit better than my Nib Creaper.

I have had good results mating the Indian Ebonite bodies to vintage flexible nibs. Here is one such example that I did some 3 years back(Deccan Advocate with Waterman's no 5 stub flex nib):

The pen has a traditional Indian feeder. Does it keep up with the ink flow required for flex pens

Yes, simpler the feed, better it is for flex nibs and the stock Indian Ebonite feeder is simple enough with a generously wide ink channel, very suitable for the vintage flex nibs. Of course, one has to tweak/tune the nib and feeder combination for best performance.
