Shepton Mallet VMCC Autojumble

Last Saturday we went to one of my favourite twice yearly events held at the Shepton Mallet Show ground,which is  approx 25mls south of Bristol.
  Sometimes I pick up some Guzzi bargains but generally always buy some bits and pieces useful in the workshop like GT85, stainless steel nuts / bolts, aluminium sheet etc................and always a overpriced and ever shrinking in size Cornish pasty.
  For some reason there seemed to be a lot of interesting bikes 'For Sale' including quite a number of Vintage V Twins - some restored,others as Barn finds and a couple of what must have been original 60's/70's Choppers.

  1. John that Royal Enfield 350 with the brown saddlebags is owned by "Perc". Perc found it in 1974 lent against a shed, and when he moved it both wheels collapsed and half the petrol tank fell off. You could say it had rust issues. He rebuilt it over the next few years from bits found at the Shepton Jumble and then rode it to the Arctic Circle in Finland. He still rides it everywhere 'till this day. Man and machine in perfect harmony.
