You do realize that retail therapy means you have to spend some money don't you..

Haha, yes mate, I realise, lifes been a bit better to me recently, actually got a bit of a budget to build this one with.

found an autojumble yesterday, been there before and done ok, theres always a guy with a yellow van that sells heaps of harley and custom stuff, really nice bloke thats up for a chat and a deal

so I went with pockets stuffed ready to buy...

and he wasnt there LOL, just bloody typical, never in my life have I been at an autojumble and been able to buy all the its I wanted, this time I go proper wedged up and come away empty, well I did 20 quid on petrol, 2 quid entry and 6 quid on burger and hotdog LOL

newton abbot one appears to have dissapeared, the bristol one at the old henshaw factory seems to not be on??

getting desperate now

Lots of autojumble people have moved on to ebay, prices on ebay have gone through the roof for used parts while new stuff is still quite cheap..

There is a very big boot sale at Exeter cattle market but it starts at silly o'clock and is all over by about 10 am, sometimes you can be suprised by what you find there but you have to take a good torch to look through the boxes.

cheers guys, might try Kempton in 2 weeks time, just a big gamble, about 100 quid in petrol and entry etc.

trying to avoid fleabay, but its so easy to use, its the age old problem of I think I know what I want, but you always see other cool bits at autojumbles and ideas evolve
