Me either. I was wondering what bike the OP actually had with the thread title.

They didn't.

 

Le Jeune was built by Francois du Toit in the Cape, and le Turbo was a brand Basil Cohen had built up in Babelegi IIRC.

I knew the Francois du Toit part but not Le Turbo.Incidently I bought the Le Turbo from Willie Englebrecht, if I can spell it properly, when he worked in AVH shop in Bramley, a moer of a long time ago 

 

I cant spell
