Reuniting My Grandfather With His Old Motorcycle After 60 Years Apart

My uncle, Vince Zandbelt, tracked down, purchased and shipped my Opa’s (Grandfather’s) old 1956 motorcycle from Holland. He presented it to him this past weekend.

My Opa lost track of the motorcycle after leaving it in The Netherlands when he came to Canada in 1960.

When Vince was telling me the story and history of the bike I could kind of tell where the conversation was going and I had a smile from ear-to-ear. He wanted me to film Opa being reunited with his old motorcycle. I obviously jumped at the opportunity even though I knew I would get choked up filming it.

I love videos where people get reunited with their old vehicles and always wanted to film one. To have it happen in my own family was even more special. Couldn’t have gone better.

Feel free to share the video to spread some positive news.
