Saturday was another of the regular Kempton Motorcycle Jumble’s, run By Eric and his EGP team. These are great jumbles (swap meets for those in the US) very well organised and run by Eric and his team. And as usual for the classic motorcycle enthusiast, there was plenty to see and buy, for those of such a mind.

Another big part of the puzzle fell into place today, in the shape of an ES2 500 iron barrel, it has had a repair or two in its life, as you would expect, it is also on the top end of the bore size at 82.3, but I am looking for a late 40’s AJS piston to fit in there, but if I fail in that direction I shall have a look at getting a liner fitted, and taking it back to standard (79mm) bore size.

I also started looking at how to fix my newly aquired Smiths tacho, which I want to fit in a jaunty old fashioned classic race style.

Way back in the mists of time, I bought an oil tank with a big hole in it, this one to be exact…

Well said hole is now a non hole, and today it also had a nice shiney new filler cap fitted, so next stop will be the body shop for some filler and paint…
