This collection is in some instances quite unique, as Johan Boshoff's 250, which was given to Alan by Johan's father, and is ready to race.

There's a story behind most of the bikes. Look again at the blue CG125 on the first pic of reply #1. It was ridden by a younster in the '60's and hung in the garage roof in '68. Forty years later it was given to Alan, still with its, then current, Third Party Token on the bike, cleaned up and put on display.

The red XL 125 is stil brand new with just a couple of kilo's on thye clock.

And all those bikes run like Swiss watches.

Don't be surprised if you find it somewhere in Alan's collection. He's like a magnet to these bikes and its his big passion. There are more than the four you see.

Hi Lorraine  :biggrin:

Nah ! Suspected it was you. Give Alan our regards and let us know when he is out of hospital.  :thumleft:

Ja-nee, daai is ook 'n workshop om oor te drool. Die man het groot passie en as ons eers begin met die ou bikes is daar nie einde nie.

The red one (2nd) reminds me of my Honda C110 50cc from 1968 somewhere ... You really have got some beautiful specimens there and I can just imagine that there is never a dull moment  :thumleft:
