Eysink, van fiets tot motorfiets


Eysink, from bicycle to motorcycle

 (This book is currently sold out.)


At one time, Eysink was the largest motorcycle factory of the Netherlands. It was founded in 1886 by Dirk Hendrik Eysink. This book enters at length into the numerous models the company produced and the races in which these were used. Furthermore, the book examines the development of the Dutch motorcycle industry at large, so that related companies such as Simplex are also discussed. However, Eysink is not only known for building motorcycles. The company has also been the second largest Dutch motor car company, after Spyker, and its car models will therefore also be presented extensively. Eysink’s history has been set in a broad context. Contrary to a previous publication about Spyker, in which the rise of the Dutch motor car industry is expounded, this book about Eysink illustrates the history of the rise of the motorcycle in the Netherlands. It is the standard work on the Eysink company and the only publication that considers the history of the motorcycle in the Netherlands from a broad perspective.
