Joseph Van Hooydonk was a Belgian living in England who built his first Minerva-powered motorcycles in 1900 at his small factory in Holloway Road, north London.

The Trimo Phoenix forecar emerged in 1903, a tricycle fitted with a Velox engine which had a passenger seat located between the two front wheels and a two-speed gearbox, designed and patented by Joseph Van Hooydonk.
