Questions? Looking for parts? Parts for sale? or just for a chat,
The WD Motorcycle forum
Kempton Autojumble was very quiet today and there were lots of large gaps. I’m afraid that Morton’s are running it into the ground by squeezing the stall holders and punters too much. However, I did manage to buy 2 nice rigid Matchless frames but I do wish I had gone to Shepton.
Shepton was very good, perhaps there were a couple more gaps and fewer punters than last time?, but still one of the best jumbles in my oinion, I had a few nice buys and I moved on several spare bits, but catching up with the fellow enthusiasts is the best bit, sorry you didn't get there Ian.

I also managed to find a few parts and my pre ordered parts from John O B, it makes a refreshing change to Kempton. I don't know why Moreton's clashed it? There were some of the regular dealers and lots of punters at Shepton. As usual I spent a good while chatting to friends (Rob, John etc. No Ian!)
There is also a lovely cafeteria behind the main hall, which is better than a dry bacon bap any day.

Yes, sadly something came up that prevented my attendance...I did do the 'Bristol Show' at Shepton in Febuary and would say that was much busier than it generally is...
I've got Stafford at the end of April and I'm hoping that will get a better attendance than last year, which was very poor as a trader...
I guess things will get 'back in the groove' at some point but there are a number of negative influences in play as well as the after effects of the Covid disruption...
Some of the traders I know are reporting plenty of activity, one has told me he had the best Febuary for sales of spares that he's had since he started the business nearly two decades ago...Ian

I did manage to find a WD rear wheel for a James ML fir reasonable money. There was also a set of ML front forks but I think the seller still had them at the end of the day.
