Visiting Kempton Jumble...

What a nice day out was yesterday, it was part of a long weekend over here in the UK, the sun was out with the warmth of early summer, and the air was filled with the smell of oil, rust, and bacon sarnies, for it was another Kempton motorcycle jumble, run by Eric and EGP enterprises.

My mates, Shaun, Bob, and Marcus were there, freshly returned from disturbing France. Baza and "dat der Karl" also made an appearance. And of course we had Grandad complete with battle scars, MrEd, and Graham, just to round things off. Perfect. It was nice to see you all.

And of course there were some old rusty piles of junk, that only we could love.... so shall we have a look at what caught my eye this time around? why not...

Neato! It's great to see a swap meet that is not just a bunch of Sportster take-offs and various chopper parts that have fallen out of fashion. If only our swap meets had Sunbeams and Manx Nortons.

That last bike is interesting to say the least. Seems to have a bicycle style front brake cable but the thing it's connected to doesn't appear to do anything but straddle the fender?

That is a Matchless model J, it is hard to find a good picture on the net, but it should have rim brakes...

Always enjoy your pics and the effort is appreciated. Was looking through your Mortimer Classic pics, 2011. Freaking gnarly Greeves first picture in the gallery. But you have a pic of a Harley XR1200 somebody turned into a...dirt bike.

Enjoy your threads, I'd love to see more of every day life in the UK type pics if you get bored, I for one would get a big kik out of it. Thanks again.

Well, I'm not Kev, but it appears to be an early 1930s ES2 with a megaphone and tacho on it, and the lights taken off. (By the late 30s, they had spring heels, IIRC.)

I think you nailed it mostly, it was also for sale on ebay for a while, but is well over priced, so hasn't sold as far as I know...
