Registration no. DLP 836
Frame no. 5866
Engine no. 37/12/3010
The trials special offered here consists of the modified swinging-arm frame and cycle parts of a post-war AMC heavyweight single and the engine of a 1937 AJS Model 12. The machine takes its identity and registration mark, 'DLP 836', from the latter, though it should be noted that the accompanying old-style continuation logbook (issued 1948) records the original Model 12's frame number ('4677') and not that of the frame currently fitted ('5866'). Purchased by the vendor in 2010, 'DLP 836' was one of three AJS competition machines laid up in a farmer's barn since 1968, the other two being purpose-built competition models supplied by the Arter brothers. The farmer stated that all three machines had competed as part of the same team. No work has been carried out on the AJS since purchase, although the vendor has acquired a competition toolbox for it, which is included in the sale. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, the machine is offered with the aforementioned and is sold without reserve.
