Cheltenham Autojumble

Went down to the Cheltenham Autojumble on Saturday mostly to collect my new rear sprocket from Sprockets Unlimited.

As would be expected there were a few Shite Old Bikes there, including


BSA sidevalve

And a Shovel that looked older than it was

Triumph unit lump for a grand.

Picked up some polishing supplies and gaffer tape before heading off to pick up my sprocket, only to discover they had forgotten to bring it. Alls well that ends well as they promised to post it first thing on Monday and it turned up today.

Had a great weekend and this year decided to hang around until the early afternoon on the sunday which meant I got to see an Austin 7 on the Wall of Death and the hangover friendly soapbox racing.

Oh and I took a camera so here are some pictures of bikes...

My bike next to Benny's Cutter

Benny looking at Spindles bike... coil had died.

I like the look of this nice simple lines, the sort of thing I want to do with my 'Not a Project' Sportster....

... but then again they do look good in a hardtail frame.

It was all American Twins...
