Nadine

My name is Nadine Booysen, I’m 28years old & live at No. 9 Copperfield Road, Salt River, over the road from Cape Sidecars. I’m a hard worker and a proud mother of 2 daughters. They are my motivation. My passion is to learn new things, work hard and  create a better life for my kids and to always protect them & keep them safe. It’s my job to make sure the sidecar depot & workshop are spotless & the funkiest places to visit.
