It's time for another trip to the Netherlands and we've been to the jumble at Heerhugowaard again.  We've brought you reports from here before, but his is the first time we've brought you pictures of the Springtime version of the jumble.

Benelli The first bike to catch our eye as we went through the door was this Benelli.

Magneet This Magneet was on sale for €550.

Sachs Saxonette If you didn't want to spend that much, you could buy this Sach Saxonette for just €50 ... and it's an electric start one too.

MV Agusta Liberty Or you could spend a little bit more and have this MV Avusta Liberty for €3,750.  There was another Liberty on sale ... but more of that later...

Union Polaris A Union Polaris - This must be an unusual bike because we can't remember seeing one before.

Union sign You could even buy a sign to go with it.

Honda PS50 Honda PS50, the sporty version of the PC50 ... well, in looks ... perhaps.

VéloSoleX 3800 A Motobécane VéloSoleX 3800 with all the extras.

Amstel 707 This Amstel 707 has been a centrefold pin-up in Bromfiets magazine

Lohmann This Lohmann mounted on a Göricke bicycle was fitted with a roller pressure regulator...

Lohmann And here's a closer view at that device.

Ducati M55 A Ducati M55

Sparta Sport 1962 Sparta Sport on sale at €850

Motom Motom 48S

Lohmann Another Lohmann - this one is the Spanish-made version.

Ducati Cucciolo Ducati Cucciolo

Sparta Buddy and Rocky Several people ride to the jumble, so it's worth taking a look outside every so often - especially if it's a sunny day like today.  Just outside the entrance is a pair of Sparta mopeds: a Buddy and a Rocky.

Bikes parked outside Several bikes parked along the fence - these are mostly Kreidlers and Zündapps.

Zündapp GTS50 This is a Zündapp GTS50.

Customised PuchCustomised Puch This military-style customised Puch was outrageous enough for a second picture.

Piaggio Ape This Piaggio Ape was for sale...

Piaggio Ape ...but this one was for show.

Benelli A Benelli in typical Italian sports 50 style.

Avada We're back indoors now and looking at an Avada moped; the engine is by HMW.

Box of bits A box of bits - on the top is a cover plate for the Dutch-built version of the Mosquito 38.

Demm and Garelli A pair of Italian sports mopeds: on the right is a Garelli Rekord and on the left, a Demm - one of the 2-stroke models.

Bianchi Aquilotto This was the 25th time this jumble had been held and, in celebration, everyone who came could enter a free prize draw; this Bianchi Aquilotto was the prize.

Guy Bolton We weren't here just to take pictures; here's Guy haggling for some Ducati Cucciolo parts.

Danny ...while Danny practises the traditional craft of speedo cable weaving.

Derbi Antorcha A Derbi Antorcha, with a couple of spare engines, and the frame of another Antorcha.

Mosquito A Mosquito - we think we've seen this one being offered for sale at previous jumbles.

Mosquito Centrimatic Mosquito Centrimatic

MV Agusta Liberty Up near the top of the page we said there was a second MV Agusta Liberty at the jumble.  This is it.  The engine is on the table and there are more engine spares in the grey box.  But, the thing about this one was ... it was coming home with us.

Loaded car The car loaded up ready for the journey home.  It all fitted in, even the Liberty in in there.

That wasn't quite the end of our trip: in his continuing quest for Ducati Cucciolo bits, Guy had arranged to drop in at one of the stallholders' homes.  This gave us the opportunity to indulge another of our favourite activities: looking round other people's sheds and garages.

Inside the garage So, here we are - and it's quite a large garage with several classic cars inside: a few Jaguars, a Lancia, an Airstream camper...

Inside the garage There's a 4-stroke Demm here, and a Ducati Cucciolo.  There's a big Ducati too at the back.

Inside the garage Danny's spotted a Pegaso ... he'd like one of those.

Inside the garage There's another Cucciolo up there.

Inside the garage There's an Aston Martin in here too.

Olly While we were there, we met Olly.

On the way to the ferry, the car was even more heavily laden...

Pegaso loaded on the car ...we said Danny wanted a Pegaso.
