The VMCC Somerset Section's biannual auotjumble at the Shepton Mallet showground is always a good day out, as much a social occasion to catch up with old friends as to pick up parts for ongoing or future projects.
Stall numbers were slightly down on pre-covid times, understandable as the event only got the go ahead at late notice. Personally I picked up a handful of nice parts, a couple I needed and a couple I didn't but was slightly disappointed by the array of complete machines on sale. Maybe that's because I went with the hope that I would find a bargain veteran that I could ride home on, one can live in hope...
Below a few pics from the day.
|Another daily rider. This sweet BSA B31 is still|
giving the service its makers intended 70 years
after rolling off the Small Heath production line.
|Norton Internation M30 was offered for sale, I didn't|
see the price on it though.
|BSA Bantam D14/4 Sports and a 350 and 500|
Matchless, all at very fair prices. On the day the
Bantam sold and the Matchless' went home.
|1936 Scott tempted me. I've got money burning a|
hole in my pocket for a decent pre-war bike having
sold a couple of machines recently. It's a vintage open
frame Scott that I'm really after though so resisted
temptation with this one.

|This is how to do a jumble in style! More so if you|
are selling Harley parts.
