18 September 2016: My hunny and his friends Mitch, Elton and Steven went for a ride to the Bike Museum in Deneysville mainly to have breakfast and also for a stroll around the museum. Going on these rides is my hunny's form of total relaxation.
The Historic Motorcycle Museum is in the town of Deneysville, one and a half hours away from Johannesburg on the property of Lake Avenue Inn at the Vaal Dam OFS.
|Watching restoration in progress|
The Museum was opened on the 9th September 2009 and is the only one of its kind in Africa. The brainchild of John Boswell (owner and X TT Isle of Man Sidecar Racer) who has always had a passion for restoring and re-building Classic British Bikes.
In the Museum you will find over 100 exhibits dating as far back as 1909. There is also a Jawa Z15 1976, Motorcycle of which there are only 3 left in the world. Currently the Museum has been visited by over 20,000 guests from around the country and the world.
|Not sure what Mitch is up to here|
Memorabilia from well known springbok motorcycle racers like Keith Zeeman, Les van Breda, Peter Labuschagne, Dave Peterson, Jimmy Whyte to name but a few can also been seen.
Well known 6 times world champion Jim Redman's, Honda 250/4 replica motorcycle is also housed in the Museum. On special occasions like the Museum's anniversary date all the wonderful racing champions visit for what is a rare and wonderful opportunity for guests to meet these wonderful people.
When visiting in the area the Museum is a must see for all motorcycle fanatics.
