Yesterday March 10th was another Mortons Media run Kempton Park Jumble, and although the weather was predicted to be wet and rainy, apart from one small shower it was a very nice day, warm with just a little sun thrown in. It had the usual mix of old, and not so old motorcycles and parts for sale, and plenty of people milling around to make the day interesting.

VMCC Shepton Jumble…

It was a perfect autumnal day down in the west country for a visit to the VMCC Shepton Mallet Jumble, and as such there were loads of people milling about. And of course for me, this was a great chance to find some needed parts for my A65 project. although to be fair I was not really looking for anything in particular, but anything related to the front end would be a good score.

So what did I get then?

well I managed to get a complete twin leading shoe brake front wheel assembly, a BSA B25 remote oil filter, some old spanners, a headlight grill stone guard, and a fuel line crossover unit for my Guzzi. Along with general consumables.

A good day.

I thought it might be fun to have a look at some old “Scrambles” iron,  Scrambles, there in itself is link to the past, as it now seems to be called motocross. But old school scrambles is the best, there is nothing like the smell of Castrol R, and the sound of a four stroke single being used in anger.

So here are a few shots I have taken from the local pre 65 classic scramble, as run by the Mortimer Classic MCC  http://www.mortimerclassicmcc.com/

Castrol R on the Breeze…

Sunday morning saw me taking my trusty BMW R80ST out for a ride, autumn has turned up,  with a big blue sky, and a warm breeze. So it seemed only right to go out and enjoy the last throws of summer while I can.  But where to go? that my friends is the question.

Not too far from where I live, they have a small classic Scramble track (Scramble is old time Moto-Cross) so I thought that may be worth a morning out, and sure enough I was not dissapointed.  As I rode down the country lanes towards the track, I could hear the bark of competition bikes echoing off the trees, and the air was heavy with dust and Castrol R. Perfect.

I thought I would start with a quick walk around the paddocks to see what was there, only to be greeted with a monster of competition bikes in the form of an AJS 7R, fantastic, and of course as you will see there were many other great classic bikes about the place as well.

Berkshire Triumph..

I took a ride out on my Guzzi Ambo over to the Berkshire Triumph show, hosted by the local TOMCC, the sun disregarded the broadcast severe weather warning of torrential rain and flash floods, and instead beat down on us under blue sky’s all day. I do however think the weather warnings played a part in holding some of the people back, as numbers were down on last year.

The Guzzi ran better than it ever has in my ownership, the clutch was almost smooth and not grabbing in first, and even though it got quite hot in the local Saturday traffic, I had no oil leaks from the motor. That just leaves the small weeping leak from the back of the gearbox to sort out at a later date.
