‘I’m now exactly 65 years old. When I was a young man I went to Cape Town for a bit. I worked there for about 46 years. From there I came back home to Prince Albert, where I was born. When I got here I had little to do so I started experimenting with bicycles, and so I started with this bicycle - as it stands there I built it up bit by bit. I’ll put on the little roof and the next day I’ll look at it and see that I can add some horns, so it got horns and so on. Then I realized - this bike must be registered, and it needs number plates! I’ve entered old car competitions and I even got a certificate from the George Old Car Show. And I’ll be appearing in a film with my bicycle one of these days! It is called 'n Saak van Geloof... It’s the only riches that I possess, this bicycle, and I think we’ll still be together for a long, long time...’
