Autojumblers revel in the fields of Netley

By Jack Harrison, 10 September 2013

From engines and oil to tyres and tinware, keen motorcyclists have been uncovering the bargains at yet another successful outing for one of Europe’s top autojumble events...

The 20th Carole Nash Eurojumble, held on Friday and Saturday, September 6-7, saw several thousand visitors descend on Netley Marsh near Southampton as they picked their way through nearly 300 trade and autojumble plots.

Nick Mowbray, exhibition manager at organising team Classic Bike Shows, said: “It has been a superb two days for the Eurojumble, the traders, the visitors and Netley Marsh.”

The ever popular event saw traditional autojumble items such engine parts, frames and tyres being snapped up for rock bottom prices, as well as a number of complete motorcycles on offer ranging from £100 to over £10,000.

“Tyres and wheels sound like they should be easy to find, but when we are talking about the classic motorcycle market it becomes bit trickier,” added Nick.

“That’s the driving force behind the Eurojumble; there are things here that you just can’t get anywhere else.”

Some of the more popular buys included a sidecar and mini moto machines.

On top of the successful two days for traders, local bars, restaurants and hotels saw the benefits with show-goers coming from far and wide to uncover the array of hidden treasures and fantastic deals.

“Because of what the Eurojumble can offer, motorcycle enthusiasts come from all over the UK to Netley in search of parts, pieces and bikes.

“And, with channel crossings not too far away, we also see many visitors from mainland Europe too.”

With the show now moving into its third decade, Netley Marsh can look forward to welcoming the Eurojumble in 2014 and beyond.

The Classic Bike Shows team will next be in action at the massive Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show in Stafford in October.
