As an extrapolation of the book there’s currently a small exhibition at South African market, a concept store in Cape Town that’s dedicated to local design products. Called South African Bicycle Builders, the exhibition presents a number of these classic bicycles and frames from private collections of a few of Grobler and Engelbrecht’s friends.
