Linex Yamaha is a registered Dealer in Yamaha Motorcycles, Outboard Engines, Waverunners, Yamaha Star Cruisers, Quads, MX Bikes etc. When you think of Linex Yamaha it conjures up images of the legendary showroom that now exists on Hans Strydom Drive in Randburg. The truth of the matter is that just over thirty years ago it was merely a dream of Danny Mulder's that was brought to fruition by sheer determination, guts and a burning passion for bikes, boats and anything else that was motor driven.
Danny's father owned a BP garage and a second hand car dealership on 63 Hans Strydom Drive, Linden Extension. The name of the used car dealership was called Linex Motors, which was derived from Linden Extension. Danny's dad provided the premises for Danny to start the business, this did not mean that Danny was in for an easy ride. (Pardon the pun).
Being the man that Danny is, the start of his Yamaha dream was more important than his own set of wheels at the time, a Honda CB750, so he sold it and became a Yamaha dealer using the money from the motorcycle to buy stock. This was to prove to be a good decision because it wasn't long and Linex Yamaha had made it's first sale...an RD400...to his dad!
Linex has come very far since their modest start in 1977. They started out with only one staff member, Danny the salesman, bookkeeper and mechanic. Assembling new bikes and servicing them and selling parts and accessories.
