A free Saturday to go out and play and several events to choose from. As the weather was so hot, I didn't want to get up early and Beaulieu is just down the road, I decided on the Spring Autojumble. The added bonus was that my British Motorcycle Charitable Trust membership got me in for free.
The Spring jumble feels like somewhere between a quarter and a third of the size of the Autumn one, that said it is still reasonably large. The atmosphere is good and there are interesting things to see though the two wheeled content is small. Most of the stalls are regular traders rather than garage clear out types, I only found one bicycle light to buy but there was plenty to gawp at and just wandering around and having a natter and banter with folk along the way makes for a pleasant day. Below a few pictures of odd and sods that caught my eye...
|Harding Tricycle with Cyclemaster powered wheel.|
|1929 Baker Villiers 250cc. Needed a full rebuild, some would|
leave cosmetically as is others might restore. £2850 was the
|Another angle of the Baker.|
|BSA unit twin (a 1969/70 model I believe) was tidy, not too|
sure if offered for sale or not.
|This is the kind of thing that makes Beaulieu|
special and fun to wander around.
|This was my biggest temptation, a Rudge|
Autocycle in fantastic unrestored condition.
£1500 was asked.
|MV Augusta Ipotesi 350cc twin.|
|Sweet little 175cc Ducati.|
|A very classic motor shape.|
|Citroen 2CV on the road and rusty. Something|
appealing about these, can't say the work
needed would appeal though. £525 to you sir.
|Not being in to the old car world particularly|
I was surprised how reasonably priced some
are in comparison to motorcycles of the same
era. This 1937 Morris 14 was £5000. The list of
work recently carried out must have near cost
that in parts alone.
|1960 Auto Union, three cylinder two stroke|
1000cc. ASking price £6750.
