What about Ed Hertfelder?

We kinda ran out of Ed Hertfelders. We were running stories that we published in Bike SA in the early 80s, but have used them all. We are trying to track him down or track down some of his stories for future issues. For this month, Peter Leroy did a brilliant story on his first attempt at trail riding. Have a look.

Nick's reply email:

Hi Donovan
 
The panniers were custom-made by my mate Pieter van den Bergh for his BMW F800GS. I’m going to copy him in on this reply and see if he wants to make their story known.
 
Kind regards
 
Nick
P.S Pieter, boet – what say you?


I shall await Sir Pieter's response

Hi -jack off.

From Sir Pieter:

Hi Donovan
 
I build them custom to fit my bike, didn't like the big panniers and the fact that they're too low as well, so I designed them. Just enough space to pack the extra goodies, also, I don't like to carry to heavy load. No top-heaviness whatsoever, handles still very good.
Ja, lots of hard and precise work though, didn't yet think of started manufacturing them yet. (Maybe one day)
I'll see if there's a market.
 
Regards
 
Pieter van den Berg

Donovan, when will we be able to get this magazine in electronic format?

I buy it every so often, if I could download I would more than likely subscribe.

Thanks Nick, 2-Stoke, Donovan for relaying the message, and Pieter for providing insight!
Pieter - (via Nick?) - I would like to chat with you if possible; could you PM me your e-mail address or tel number?
Thanks
