The 1927 AJS H6 'Big Port' was truly race-bred in every sense. After a convincing victory in the 1920 Isle of Man Junior TT, AJS's new overhead-valve 350 racer scored a memorable double the following year, Tom Sheard winning the Junior race and Howard Davies (later of HRD fame) the Senior, the first time such a feat had been achieved on a 350cc machine. Capitalizing on these significant racing successes, the production version 350 made its debut in November 1922, delighting clubmen everywhere with its 'racer-on-the-road' performance. A right-first-time design, destined to achieve countless successes in the hands of privateers, the overhead-valve 350 AJS - latterly known as the 'Big Port' - changed only in minor detail before being superseded by a much-revised M6 model for 1929. In 1927 the H6 was by far the most expensive 350cc model marketed by AJS, reflecting not only its quality but its high technical specification.

The bike we present to you here is matching numbers and was imported in Chicago, IL. It was bought by the seller in 2005 via James D Julia auctioneers. The bike comes with the original UK registration document.
