Netley Autojumble Hits The Mark Again
IT was another successful Netley weekend for the Classic Bike Shows team, with traders, dealers and visitors coming from all corners in search of the biking bargains.
The Carole Nash Eurojumble, which took place on September 4-5, is already one of the biggest motorcycle autojumbles in the UK, and this year saw it grow further with the introduction of a classic auction from Charterhouse and extended Saturday trading in the Garage Clearout.
Head of the event Richard Graham said: “We’re really pleased with how successful the new show elements were; they added to another fantastic Netley event.”
Held on the show’s first day, a large crowd gathered to see a variety of lots go under the hammer, and organisers reported that approximately 90% of items estimated under £10,000 were sold.
The Garage Clearout was an even bigger success, with more than 20 members of the public arriving on Saturday with contents of their garages, sheds and workspaces packed into vehicles for a special one day trade plot.
A range of clubs were also represented, showcasing some finely restored and maintained machines. Attending the event for the first time, it was the LC Club which went home with the Best Club Stand award for its exhibition.
Attention for Classic Bike Shows now turns to October, and the huge annual Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show – one of the biggest events of its kind in the world – which takes place in Staffordshire on October 17-18.
