Southern Classic Bike Show Kempton Park 3

The final tranche of photos from a day of scuffing around Kempton Park. This time some punters bikes from the bike park and a few more autojumble gems.

Lovely used pre-war Velocette MAC ridden to the show.

This is what could be termed a 'character bike'. Panther with
mods for regular comfortable use. Is that screen from a Ural?
Plus massive tail pack, possibly for carrying a canine companion.

Recently built Metisse with electric start Indian Royal Enfield
Bullet motor. Sweet bike.

Harley 45 ridden to the show.

This cafe racer BSA A10 was in the jumble
area. Not sure if it was for sale or not. Nice untouched
sixties cafe racer. Were it mine I wouldn't change
a thing on it.

Tail view of same BSA A10 cafe racer. Hmmm... did I say
I wouldn't change a thing if it was mine, amend that, I might put a
period black / silver number plate on it.

This Triumph pre-unit chop was displaying some heavy
duty patina. It could have been tucked away for years but
I know from bitter experience that just two or three years in
a leaky shed can yield similar results.

Close up of the Triumph chop. I'm a big exponent of keeping
stuff oily rag but this one would definitely benefit from looking

Last but not least this very purposeful Norton Commando
engined Wasp off road outfit. The rear suspension is
taken care of by a cantilever with a Mini rubber suspension
cone and external damper.
