If that stall has a decent 4 speed main shaft for £25 I would be most interested. I can arrange to collect from Ham Street.

i finally got into the show by about 11.30 am, the scouts appeared to be having some trouble letting people in to park, even though there were plenty of car parking spaces to be seen. ,  had a look about the only Bantams i could see was the super stock racer and one other, ,All very dark in side, i went outside to look at the auto jumble, loads of HA hanging about , decided to leave. I couldn't see the stand. must be the old age.

We had a lot of Bantams there, I don’t know how you could have missed us! Next to the Norton club, BSA owners club and almost the first section under the auction roof, we had quite a display. It sounds like you must have missed half the show!

Don't know how I missed that. Must say I was a bit stressed  .

Looks like I missed a whole section of the show.  Was you any where near the Honda's that were on show. 

I also managed to loose my phone.  Which didn't help matters. 

I later found the phoneit had fullen out of my pocket and slide down the side. 

 

Always next year.

Never mind, as you say there is always next year. With the weather being so good, there were loads of people about too, it was packed! There were mainly old British stuff near us and a few with sidecars, an old Vincent and a drag bike (not a bike dressed up as a woman)

Glad you found your phone, we have so much of our lives on them these days it’s a disaster when you don’t have them..
