    Triumph trident. What's in a name?

    A trident. A spear with a personality disorder. Or cutlery for a lover of five pound steaks. And traditionally the weapon from the PSU of Poseidon, a God from the time when people still believed in Gods. And the unimaginative ones. But dramatically charged type name for three-cylinder combustion engines. The Triumph So trident. Sea

    The market, the split

    There is one thing that binds us right now: our surprise at the classic prizes. We read what they brought in at the international auction houses.

    Hurry, hassle and Sunday mornings - column

    It's after 22.00am and in after XNUMXpm. My phone is pinging its classic ring tone. It is a media expert that asks how long I can hold my stomach and whether I will be free for a photo session on Sunday morning - and maybe a bit of the afternoon. A photo session on some new motorcycle. Sea

    Motobécane Z54C (1954). Prize winner of Jan-Gerrit Sprietsma.

    Biker at the bakery

    Here it is all still not too bad with the Coronakriebels. And in the morning at the bakery there is now a fairly stable group of people on the sidewalk waiting for their turn. Nice in the sun.

    Yamaha RD350 LC YPVS

    Yamaha has an impressive two-stroke history. And the provisional (?) End of that was the Yamaha RD350 LC YPVS. LC stood for liquid cooled. So liquid-cooled. We will come back to the YPVS. The Yamaha was a cheetah in wolf's fur. The Yamaha RD350 LC - with a conventional exhaust system - was the basis of the story and was […] Sea

    1.000 euro is a great price

    Sometimes you think that in the classic world everything is already arranged and organized. That everything is on the Internet. That classics are all priceless. Fortunately, we once again encountered an exception that confirmed the rule. We met a friendly classic seller. One without a site. Because that is such a hassle. He's on FB. But then […] Sea
