    Hardenberg motorcycle market: 5 October

    The motorcycle market in Hardenberg is world famous in the east of the country, but attracts more and more people who make the quite long trip to Hardenberg from the far West. After all, 'Hardenberg' is not a fair that is organized by an event agency as a revenue model, but is the forty-year tradition of motorcycle club 'de Gasschoeve'. And […] More

    MG Midget - The MG of the doctor

    In a village, things are a bit smaller than in the wild west of the Randstad. But here too, dentists and oral care practice complex buildings and GP stations are advancing. And five serious supermarkets plus two small Turkish idems for a population of 15.000? We know that too. My dentist has an old Harley And the now […] More

    VW Beetle 1303… Value and where the steering wheel is

    Classics are regularly offered with 'the wheel on the wrong side'. That handlebar on the right was once quite normal. The split of minds came later. The approach is that classics from countries where people drive on the right have left-hand drive. Only in myramar is it apparently different. Left-hand drivers have right-hand drive. […] More

    Mercedes Benz W201 / C-Class Club. Fun and professionalism

    During Star Cars & Coffee in Surhuisterveen, Pieter-Jan Kamstra of the Mercedes-Benz W201 / C-Class Club Netherlands introduced us to Patrick Bouland, founder of the club. It does not just consist of a random collection of enthusiasts. The association, which has been active since 2018, takes things very seriously, and is affiliated with the Mercedes-Benz Automobile Clubs Foundation. ”Through the […] More

    Theft and justice

    Visiting a client in the center of Antwerp? That's what you grab the bike for. And my V7 was ready for a long drive. I rarely or never lock my motorcycles. And if it has a rear view mirror on it, then I put my helmet on it. I put the Guzzi […] More

    Invest in classics

    Classics and investing? They usually don't fit in an old sock under the bed. But they are quite interesting from an investment point of view with the trend of current interest rates. Moreover, if interest rates become negative, there will be a shortage of old socks in this country. When it comes to that, be careful when opening the […] More

    Barn finds, investing and restoring

    In the Netherlands in Belgium, hundreds and hundreds of classics have yet to be forgotten in sheds and under shelters. We have to, because we alone come across them by the dozen. The question is: should you be happy with such a barn find? That shouldn't be. It's allowed. Motorcycles that have been stationary for a (very) long time usually do not work because of it […] More

    RDW: Rules are rules

    After his retirement, a loyal AMK reader had the time to make his dream come true: He was going to restore a 2CV. That process began a few years ago, when old ducks changed hands for little. And it ended at the RDW for the time being. A Retirement Project The car our reader found was a scraggly […] More

    Diesel out the door

    Diesel is nowadays suspicious, even reprehensible. The particulate matter from diesel engines is a threat to just about everything. No particle filter or cheating electronics will help. By reasoning clearly, administrators and government have made that clear. We classic enthusiasts are also saddled with that realization. And we are no longer allowed to come, drive or be the owners of […] More

    Fill up E10 gasoline

    From 1 October, most filling stations in the Netherlands are obliged to offer petrol with E10 (10% bioethanol). This has consequences especially for the owners of classics and young timers (both cars, motorcycles and scooters). Carelessly filling the tank will soon no longer be possible, because the combination of older motor vehicles and green petrol […] More

    India. Who travels far away ...

    … Can have many stories. And classic enthusiasts travel a bit. For the real knights among the classic motorcyclists, the information below naturally comes as manna from heaven. However, we do not know if Shiva, Brahma and Ganesha are also in the manna business. After all, we have to live for advertisements. The visit to the […] More

    Army vehicles from after WWII

    Army vehicles and dangers in peacetime The celebrations due to the fact that the Second World War ended 75 years ago for us have been grand. Through the media, people were urged not to go there because of the crazy crowds. That is what the media should have told the Germans in 1940 ... Al [...] More
