The story BEHIND the name…. Back in the day, Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda and Kawasaki ALL had water-cooled 4 cylinder bike motors and BMW was under pressure to bring the same to its home market (…and the World!) BMW thus approached Peugeot for help with a car-based 4 cylinder water-cooled motor; Peugeot had an unused development model sitting ‘on the shelf’, but had no plans for it, BMW took over the development, and then the designers rotated it 90 degrees to fit into a bike frame! It was NOT what the Germans were wanting, was something of an “ugly duckling” and was ‘affectionately’ known as the “FLYING BRICK” … OK, UN-affectionally! Chris owned a Café’d BMW K100, the original ‘Flying Brick’, so the name has always resonated with him. At the same time he developed a luggage bag, dual compartments; a mentor helping out with design input commented it looked like an Air Brick (used in building…), and again, the name ‘Flying Brick’ stuck. Why open a motorcycle accessory store? They never actually wanted to Retail because “Its bloody hard work!” Chris, however needed an outlet to display his newly designed Flying Brick Luggage System and an opportunity presented itself inside a Yamaha store in Cape Town. No sooner had he started; when other requests came in for alternative soft luggage items and accessories and the need to supply, and just maybe be better and bigger was triggered! So the little monster was born and 9 months later, they then moved into their own premises; surrounded by complimentary businesses and the area is now affectionately known as Gasoline Alley. 10 years on, the business employs 8 people, and it has expanded twice since it started. This is their 10th full year in business, and to celebrate ,they will be re-designing their logo for some products/items, and this redesigned logo should provide some smiles/laughs! Watch out for it around mid-year! They have a FITMENT CENTRE where they fit whatever they sell, they have a qualified motorcycle electrician on call for installation of after-market electrical/electronic items, such as indicators, hooters, GPS’s, etc. They cater primarily for the Adventure Market, with some overflow into road/scooter and commuters. They are also an EXPERIENTIAL Store: you can TRY the spotlights out, you can borrow a windscreen spoiler for 72 hours, free-of-charge, you can try out their comfort seat cushion – their emphasis is on DO touch!
