    … And the Art of Motorcycle Maintanance

    Making messages online is topical work. In the production of the monthly magazine Auto Motor Klassiek there is much more rest and planning. And that would be even more relaxed if online readers would subscribe. Because the monthly magazine is still the cork we float on. The daily online news costs nothing. And such a More

    From the old box: Garage Vingerling

    Nowadays, a dealer is told exactly what his business should look like – at a visible location or company site – from the importer, what the lighting should be, what software updates he should purchase. What cars (or motorcycles) he has to sell in the current year and what garage-related things like More

    Image and maintenance

    Got some stuff in Arnhem. I come running. There are two tattooed beards that are the same age together as I am alone at my – yet classic – work easel. They take pictures and are very excited. Because I'm not dressed as a motorcyclist or biker I can go to them unnoticed More

    White sludge oil

    This is called 'Sludge' in technical language. No panic, that does not necessarily mean that the head gasket (from a water-cooled engine) has left, that a crack has occurred in the cylinder head or that 'water' is added to the oil in some other way. More

    Antifreeze or coolant in classics?

    There is a difference between coolant and antifreeze. Antifreeze is an agent that only lowers the temperature at which the water / liquid starts to freeze. It can therefore also be used for windshield wiper fluid, for example.

    Coolant is the fluid that provides more than just cooling in the cooling system of an internal combustion engine. More

    Bearings, the forgotten toilers

    Roller bearings are stumpers that work in the dark. The roller bearings that have learned more by doing so may be sheltered in a nice greasy warmth, but the asylum seekers among the bearings are having a hard time. They live in the outposts of technology. More
