That was a cracking day with my mates, we saw some absolutely mint bikes and met some great people on a sunny day at a famous location, and to top it off we rode to Epping forest for a cuppa before riding home on some of the best roads through Essex A top day out
Hi Great pics Mark - I'm glad some were posted up. Typical - just had some time off from work and went back onto Saturday and Sunday days, so missed Kempton and the Ace The first pic is my old Ypve/Tzr project bike I sold (rolling chassis) to Karl on here. Really pleased to see he is on the road with it. And he's done a great job with the seat/pipes and engine. Definitely be there next time
Hi Alan Kempton rarely has much 2 stroke Yam stuff unfortunately, but I do go for a mooch around a couple of times a year normally. Usually get just a few odds and sods like nuts and bolts !! The dealers get all the bargains anyway I did enjoy the Ace when I went with Yamark and Mouse last year - glorious weather made all the difference. Look forward to going again this year

Agree about the dealers..
There was a French guy there with a whole load of trail bikes. He had at least 4 x KE175 Kawasakis, the later type with the square tank. I've been after one for a while and made a beeline for him only to find out that another 'dealer' had bought the lot at about 07:30
Hi mate You can get in early if you pay a tenner, and it's before 8.45 I think. I did that once when I went before going on a day shift. A lot of the deals are done by other traders who are setting up their own stalls really early. Car boots sales used to be the same - people would turn up with empty cars, walk round and buy the bargains and then sell them from their stall !! I will never be a dealer !! Every now and then you see some Lc parts, but they are usually priced way over their value so I've never come away thinking I have had a great result. Still nice to have a look around though
