Items bearing Teazers insignia were popular among bidders when assets belonging to slain Teazers boss Lolly Jackson went under the hammer in Pretoria today.

The auction took place to help foot Jackson’s R100 million tax bill.

Items including 13 helmets, seven motorbikes, two jet skis, three racing suits, a trailer, two quad bikes and a pair of racing boots, were snapped up.

Jackson, a famous businessman known for his Teazers franchise of strip clubs, was shot six times at his Edleen house in Kempton Park, eastern Joburg, in May 2010.

Several of his associates, including lawyer Ian Jordaan and former partner Mark Andrews were killed in mysterious circumstances.

Early this year, the SA Revenue Service (Sars) asked the high court to appoint curators to take control of Jackson’s estate and assess more than 35 businesses linked to him in order to foot the tax bill.

Gerard Harding, a manager at Van’s Auctioneers, said there was a high interest in items with Teazers insignia, such as a Suzuki GSX R1000.

“Bidders seem to be interested in goods that have Teazers insignia on them and if they have the insignia the goods sell at a better price,” said Harding.

Some bidders were disappointed that a yellow 1985 Porsche 930 did not go on auction because it was still being repaired.

Successful bidders, however, declined to be named. They would only say that they were happy to receive “fair” prices for goods which would have cost more on retail.

A bike enthusiast, who brought his girlfriend to the auction, managed to buy one of Jackson’s helmets for R750.

“I would have paid R2 500 for that helmet if it was new. It’s a fair price,” he said.

No one has been arrested for Jackson’s murder.

» City Press recently reported that Czech fugitive and convicted criminal Radovan Krejcir paid R3.7 million to Jackson’s alleged killer.
