GFP was founded in 2016 by entrepreneur Alex van den Berg.
Being a superbike racer himself, and competing at National-level, he identified a gap in the market for affordable, readily available high-quality aftermarket motorcycle parts and accessories.
Alex took the first step and sourced the correct products that met the criteria and put them through personal R&D on his race bikes.
This would also benefit him in the long run, by providing him with an edge when it came to product knowledge.
Precise feedback was one of Alex's primary focuses in order to aid his knowledge of what’s being sold, thus improving after-sale services.
Alex started a small distribution office in Cape Town which supplied both the end-user as well as reputable motorcycle dealers and workshops nationwide.
By 2018, GFP saw a massive spike in growth and demand for its products which allowed room for expansion.
GFP has since then relocated to Johannesburg where most of the demand was coming from.
The increased demand for GFP products saw the expansion of its high-quality product range which was also made readily available to distributors and well-known motorcycle outlet stores.
These parts were also made available to the end user at a fixed price rate to avoid undercutting and inconveniencing those who stocked GFP Products.
Said to be one of GFP's most prosperous years, a major addition to the GFP brand was added when another gap in the market was identified.
Being in the Motorcycle Racing business and industry, we came across horror stories of clients of ours purchasing race bikes online which did not match what was being advertised.
Without the necessary knowledge and experience, it ended up costing them a lot of money and upsets.
This is when GFP decided to open a first-of-its-kind online classifieds website where we personally view and purchase motorcycles that meet a certain standard.
We then completely strip, inspect and change items that need replacement and drastically improve the overall safety, functionality, and appearance of the motorcycle.
We then serve as reputable, well-known and experienced sellers of Track & Road Orientated Motorcycles that also offer after-sale services to avoid the common tendencies of private sales.
Within the first year, GFP had sold over 100 Motorcycles and are now leading sellers in the Track-Orientated Motorcycle Market.
GFP decided to take another step in establishing itself in the South African Racing fraternity, by forming its very own “Team GFP’ Superbike Race Team where they compete in racing series all over South Africa.
One of the Team GFP riders managed to claim a championship in its very first attempt.
Team GFP continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down.
GFP found itself needing more hands, which saw the newest member join the team, Brandon Staffen.
Brandon, also a motorcycle racer himself, competed at both National & International levels which saw him claiming multiple victories on the world stage at Donington Park.
Brandon not only brings experience and knowledge on motorcycles, but is also highly competent in IT support, Website Development, and Digital Marketing and will be expanding our online digital footprint.
Brandon also made the same bold move by leaving everything behind and relocating from Cape Town to Johannesburg to further his career.
GFP is currently a 2- man Team, with over 20 years of combined experience in all things motorcycle related and all share the same relentless passion for the sport as well as the business as a whole.
GFP has many plans to further expand in the future with our main goal to be recognized as the go-to place for all things motorcycle-related.
