EAsily the biggest bike collection in southern africa
Mar 2021
Protea Motors holds easily the biggest motorcycle collection in the country. It is said more than 400 bikes and some really unusual old cars are brought together here. And make no mistake Thinus is a weltth of information, AND there is hardly anything he can not fix.
A absolute must if you are in the area, and in any-case, a good place to fuel up if going north.

Maybe best bike collection in SA

There is a small charge to see them, but the garage has what might well be the best collection of vintage motorbikes in South Africa. In fact I am not sure there is any space left inside for doing normal car servicing and works!

A must for motor bike lovers
Jul 2018 • Couples
A dull rainy day found us in Nieuwoudtville ... we excitedly headed for the Garage (as we had previously seen it on TV) to see the bikes but were somewhat disappointed that the garage was as dark as the weather outside.

Loads of bikes, bric a brac and memorabilia lovingly displayed on the floor, on shelves, in glass cabinets and on the roof... just a pity there was insufficient lighting to have a better look.

Worth a visit nontheless!

If you are interested in old motorbikes you should visit the Caltex garage at the entrance of Nieuwoudtville. The display might not be museum standard but the owner has a wealth of knowledge about almost every motorcycle that was built.
Worth the R50 entrance

Awesome collection of bikes
Jul 2016 • Friends
When we filled up at Protea I was not expecting to see such a huge collection of motorbikes. We were on a 16 day Cape to Kalahari ride, with RideDownSouth motorcycle tours so all of us were bike lovers and spent over an hour wandering through the collection. Apparently there are over 400 bikes, not all on display. Well worth a visit if you're in the area, or if riding, it's worthy of a detour to ride up Vanrhyns Pass, on R27 between Vanrhynsdorp and Nieuwoudtville.

Dusty but not crusty

What a surprise, when I went to fill up with fuel, to find a store filled with motor bikes spanning the last century. Engage the owner in conversation, or just admire the details of the past. This is not a museum, but a private collection by someone who has a love for motorcycles and old cars
