Thousands of visitors from across the UK and beyond basked in the sunshine after flocking to Netley Marsh on Friday, August 31 to Saturday, September 1 to enjoy two days of bikes, bargains and banter.
The Carole Nash Euro jumble – the UK’s largest bike auto jumble –ticked all the boxes for bike enthusiasts keen to rummage through motorcycle memorabilia and bid on stunning bikes that went under the hammer at the Charterhouse Auction.
A variety of classic motorcycles were being sold alongside specialist manufactured parts, old and new, for classic bikes at the show.The Carole Nash Euro jumble, celebrating its 25th year, proved another successful event for traders, with all plots being sold out.
Showcasing a mammoth display of spare parts, magazines, signs and even complete machines, the auto jumble offered visitors all manner of motorcycle paraphernalia at their fingertips. Charterhouse sold over two-thirds of the lots at the Netley Marsh auction.
Unfortunately the Vincent Black Shadow didn’t make the reserve, however the stunning Honda RC45 went for a staggering £19,250.
Exhibition manager Nick Mowbray said: “We’ve received cracking feedback from visitors and traders at the Carole Nash Euro jumble this year. We are delighted that the event ran seamlessly and traders were packed to the rafters, giving visitors more choice in their hunt for that Netley bargain. We are looking forward to another great show next year.”
