The list of Simon Fourie’s classic bikes for sale – 8 July 2018
As we reported last week, Simon Fourie is putting his collection of classic motorcycles plus various spares up for sale, and will be hosting a show day for people to view the bikes at the Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort on Sunday 8 July. Also, as promised, here is the list of motorcycles available and an explanation from Fourie. See list and explanation below:
After reading this list, please will serious buyers e-mail the bikes in which you are interested, in which building/warehouse they are, and I shall send you more info on them and relevant photos of the bikes.
We have actually been inundated with e-mails thus far and this is a quick list of what I have with no elaborate descriptions yet. The Japanese bikes are mostly between 1960 and 1970. Bikes in the list are mostly complete and either already restored or are restorable.
I am searching for and ascertaining the average price, in South Africa and abroad, of each bike in order to work out a price of each. I will take it’s condition into account, so it will explain why there could be more then one bike of a certain model, but with different prices.
I have had several requests from people who wish to buy before the July 8th Hartbeespoort sales party because they cannot be there, but I shall keep all informed, especially those who have indicated in which bikes they are interested.
Spare seats and tanks.
We have a goodly collection of these (tanks bubble-wrapped)and, at the time of writing, (June 24) we are still busy matching most of them up with bikes missing tanks and or seats.
We have 157 boxes of spares. We also have three photos, each at different angles, of nearly all the boxes. We have this on memory sticks to plug into your (or our) computers on July 8th.
Please note that this list of goods was valid Sunday 24 June 2018. I cannot guarantee that the list will be the same number of bikes between now and the July 8th sales party due to circumstances foreseen, like some rich Texan or English baron or South African billionaire buying some or all, or unforseen circumstances like fire, theft, earthquake, floods, me deciding to keep some…
Please also note that these goods were acquired by me around 50 years ago and licencing etc. papers are no longer available. I have been told that only a police clearance is needed for the sale and there has been a mention of a moratorium on old bikes, but will try to find out the real story.
Advice from anyone else will be appreciated.
Please don’t phone, use e-mail only:

Mr. Soichiro Honda’s notion was to build something grand, something luxurious and powerful that would make the Honda marque stand out as it had with the CB750 with a very different motorcycle that could take on the Harleys.

Bridgestone 350GTR, engine number NA1-0511
General Bridgestone numbering information:
For the 175/200cc models, – The “TA1” prefix was used for 175cc and “TA2” was for 200cc. Note, however, that the very early BS200’s were built using up the last of the stock of 175cc frames (175 and 200 frames are identic al), and these therefore would have had frame number prefixes of “TA1”.
350’s own prefix code is “NA-1”.
It may be of interest to note that the factory production codes can be cast into many components, from speedo drive gears to engine casings. “NA1” will indicate a 350 part, “TA1” as 175 part, “EA1” or “EA3” a 90 part, “GB1” a 50 Sport part, and so on.
