Engine no. 28118
Originally manufacturers of proprietary engines, A J Stevens Ltd of Wolverhampton, introduced its first complete motorcycle in 1911. The first AJS was a single-cylinder sidevalve-engined lightweight displacing 292cc that came in two versions, one with direct belt drive (Model A), while the other (Model B) had a two-speed countershaft gearbox, an advantage enjoyed by few contemporary rivals. The company first entered the Isle of Man TT in 1911, making an historic breakthrough in 1914 when it won the Junior event, the first such victory by a single-cylinder machine. From then onwards the 2¾hp (350cc) sidevalve-engined model remained a fixture of the AJS range. Light in weight (around 200lbs) robust and adequately powerful, the model is widely regarded as one the finest of early Vintage sports machines.

This particular 350 AJS appears to be an older restoration that has been maintained in good condition and would respond well to detailing; re-commissioning will be required before further use. There are 'as found' and restoration-in-progress photographs but no registration document with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed. It should be noted that the frame number (which part reads 5534) and engine number do not match.
