The weather man said it would be sunny, so of course it rained, and damn it was cold too.   But a Kempton in the wet is better than no Kempton, so obviously we had to attend. And while I never actually bought anything myself, although it was a close call with a 69 Husky 360.

There were in fact three stand out bikes for me today, an early Peugeot, a nice Sunbeam S7, and a very useable BSA A7 tele rigid.

It was a nice little jumble today in the village of Pirbright out near Guildford, cold, damp, and grey, a typical winters day. But this never stopped people turning up on some nice old classics. And I even managed to find a nice little owners club tag for myself.

Kempton Jumble…

Damn it was cold here today, it was cold enough to freeze the flame on a lighter Brrrrrrrrr! The marina was frozen, my Mercedes was frozen, did I mention it was cold? but that won’t stop me heading out to a Kempton jumble, and it didn’t, and so I did.

So lets have a look at what was about.

First some French guys were there with a nice CB450 -K1 Black Bomber, and a sweet little Ducati…

There were also a couple of Sunbeam’s for sale, did I mention it was cold?

I bought a nice little 5 in 1 Whitworth spanner for my tool roll

And a walk around the car park, revealed this nice 1972 AMF Harley Shovelhead

So first outing of 2017, and it starts sunny and dry, just need it to warm up a little now.

I was out getting the project Norton gearbox built today, so I thought I would grab a couple of pictures from the shed while I was there….

As I tidy up the files on my PC, I find I have quite a few combo pictures, bikes with sidecars, so I thought I might share a few with you guys, just for the fun of it.
