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
The Museum showcases racing legends from South Africa, Rhodesia and overseas.

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.

Drink coffee while the others ... See no evil and ... Hear no evil

Unusual to see Richard in someone else's dust

"He went that way!!!" LOL!
