VMCC Shepton Mallet autojumble

The bi-annual VMCC Somerset section autojumble held in February and October is one of the finest bike jumbles around. A nice mix of professional and amateur stalls and always something interesting to be found. Up until a couple of years back an auction was held in conjunction. It slowly declined in quality and fizzled out but since losing the auction the autojumble has grown and gone from strength to strength.

Here's a selection of snaps of machinery that caught my eye...

Not often you see an Ariel HS scrambler in road trim. This one
was particularly nicely done and was on offer inside....

... and this road trim Ariel HS was on offer outside. Also
rather nice.

Greeves modified to grass track trim. In nicely aged condition.
A veteran of the Red Marley hillclimb and a fair buy at
£1200 ono.

Autojumble humour.

This homemade two stroke flat four sold quickly on sprint
legend Henry Body's stall. Apparently it was built by a
vicar to power his scooter! Sounds like a wind up but this
was the story given. Four unknown moped engines coupled
together. Intruiging home engineering but possibly not hugely
successful! Probably sounded good though.

Itom Super Sport.

Asking £1900 for this James Commando.
