    Honda VT1100. Preferably no four-speed

    Around the second half of the 80s, the Japanese customs were thoroughly reliable. Only in the first years of Honda VT 1100, the four-speed models (1987-1996), the third gear broke too often. And in the meantime the parts are no longer available for that. Read more

    Better half turned… – column

    I met him in Arnhem and recognized him. The son of a motorcycling acquaintance, now it seems that he is already a well-worn thirties. So the son, not the father. I knew he also rode a motorcycle and he was wearing an old leather jacket with a sewn on Triumph emblem. The jacket was really old. Not fancy vintage. As I said, he looked rather drunk for what I remembered as his age. Read more

    Barn Finds: Treasure or Scrap?

    It's probably an age thing. But the number of barn finds is rising almost faster than our pride in Max. Max can go along for a long time. However, the barn finds are often the legacy of people who stopped going. Here in the east people say about a deceased “Ie is uut de tit”. Read more

    What do we give for it?

    In the housing market, the demand is apparently much greater than the supply. If € 650.000 is asked for a hut, it apparently makes sense to offer a ton above the asking price: 'the jubelton'. You will only look for a house. You will only have a lot to spend. Read more

    Harley-Davidson and AMF… A bittersweet symphony

    A turbulent history. Harley-Davidson was bad in 1969. But Harley-Davidson was saved by the American Machine and Foundry Co. (AMF). That company reorganized and invested. But to no avail. Things were in danger of turning back. 1981: Thirteen Harley-Davidson executives buy out the company from American Machine and Foundry Co. Under the inspiring leadership of the genius Willy G Davidson, the company took a life-saving leap forward into the past. Harley was one of the first brands to go retro. That's a 'long story short'.

    Utreg revisited - column

    Leddy was blessed with a bizarre sense of humor. He was also the kind of Harley rider that makes them very restless nights at The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company Benelux. The kind of Harley-Davidson rider that the illustrious factory hasn't - repeat, DO NOT - want to be associated with for decades. Read more

    Right out of the box: Harley-Davidson XLHC Sportster

    The introduction of the Harley-Davidson Sportster to the US market in 1957 was the master plan to counteract the increasingly successful British motorcycles sold in the US. The Sportster was a fast Harley-Davidson OHV with a sprung rear wheel and a lot of power. The 883 cc V-twin mainly had to compete against the Triumph Thunderbird. Read more

    Doesgek: A Buell for a ton

    The Buell motorcycle brand was founded by Erik Buell. It was his brainchild. The ambitious young Erik Buell, a pure engineer, quit his fine job at Harley-Davidson to make his own motorcycles for the AMA 750 Series. His first engine before that was the RW 750. That was a 750cc, two-stroke racer. Read more

    75 Years after the war - column

    In Germany nowadays you have to have whole rows of stamped stamps on your exhaust system. In addition, that exhaust system must be 'eingetragen' in your 'Letter'. If your exhaust system is not legal, you will immediately be fined and the Police will confiscate your motorcycle until an 'Original Auspuffanlage' hangs under it again. It is not cheated Read more

    Harley-Davidson Sportster: The End

    Someone who thought he knew everything about everything had of course also drawn up an iron definition of “What Now Actually Is Classic”. I've lost the list for a while, but one of the properties of a True Classic was that it was no longer made. So a 1957 Harley-Davidson Sportster was not a classic, as Sportsters were still being built at the time of the ruling. Read more

    A Harley-Davidson for ...

    It's just an indication, but still… For people under 40, Harley-Davidson is no longer The Brand, but 'a brand'. But quite a few of us are over XNUMX, and that's when nostalgia strikes. Read more
