Nookies nuts were there, all stainless !! He sells on ebay and lives in Wickford. I think I saw you and a younger chap sitting by the bar, I was in the corner with the old farts. Not too many stalls and quite expensive today.

Nooky's are all bright zinc plated, don't think they do that over stainless. I did ask as they also had some side stands (Cast), got a very short 'No' reply

I was down there about 11:15 or so I think. Bike went great but I was struggling with a gammy foot - the right one; didn't go well with the right foot shift. Ended up parked out the back somewhere, which gave a long walk in whilst stressing people would start disassembling my bike for parts. Had a quick look around, took some pics of a couple of H1 Kawasakis for reference and spoke to the guys on the Francis Barnett stand for info.

Other than that I found it all too large, too hot and too dusty. I'm not keen on seeing that many m/cyclists all in one place to be honest - felt like an infestation. Usual selection of pond dragged junk amongst the autojumble stalls.

Can you tell my foot is still gyping me?

If it hurts when you get up it is Plantar Fasciitis, see the internet.
