Title: Reliable Workshop in Bellville servicing older BMW
Post by: Vaufi on December 29, 2019, 08:57:37 pm
Some years ago I had my old Beemer repaired by a Bellville m/c workshop that wasn't a member of the official BMW Motorrad Group. They did a very good job and the prices were absolutely reasonable.
Unfortunately I can't remember what the name was and didn't keep my receipts  after all these years. Now a friend needs some expertise regarding his R850R.

Any ideas?

Thx guys. I'll see if I can contact Coxwain. Regarding GS Traders it seems as if their main business is trading with Beemers. No workshop apparently.

GS traders runs a workshop under Douglas Saayman, ex Donford top Mech. They have done some work on my GS. Good service.

A friend takes his bikes to Jandre at JK works. he has always had good service but sometimes has to wait a week or 3 to get a booking.

Yep, that's Jandré, apparently an independent workshop.

Thx for all the info. Great support here  :laughing4:

Jy kan maar na Jandre toe gaan. Tussen hom en Alfie word my 1150GSA eenkeer 'n jaar deurgegaan deur een van hulle 2. Res van die tyd diens ek hom self.

I can vouch for Douglas from GS Traders. I had my old 650GS serviced by him when he worked at Kingtek (was in Retreat, now moved to Durban), then the BMW dealership in town, and finally at GS Traders. I followed him, with my old bike, like a bad nightmare! :imaposer: He sorted some difficult-to-diagnose "electrickery" issues.

Ek sou graag saamkom, maar ongelukkig is ek in Munich "The Beer Capital"  :laughing4:  Ek sal eers so September se kant weer in SA wees. Maar net vir 4 - 6 weeke.

Miskien, hoe weet.... Daar het 'n paar manne al gevra of ek nie 'n bietjie tourguide wil maak. Dalk begin ons in Kaapstad. Die Wes-Kaap is baaie mooi. Maar die Oos-Kaap het ook landskap - ek dink aan die gebied om Rhodes en Lady Grey. Dan sal ons beter in PE begin.
As ons in Kaapstad begin drink ons 'n biertjie of drie?   :occasion14:

Hi Guys,

Are Alfred or Juandre still the go-to guys for an older 1200 GS service?

Yes.
Alf has been servicing all my 1150s since my first one in 2006
He knows them inside out.

Jy kan jou bike na enige van die twee neem. Alfred en Jandre werk albei by die huis.
