1928 AJS 248cc Model K12 Project
Registration no. TY 4877
Frame no. K122835
Engine no. K122835
AJS were relative latecomers to motorcycle manufacturing in 1909, yet they went on to achieve great fame in racing circles with their overhead valve and overhead camshaft models of the 1920s. This Banbury-eligible Model K12 was acquired by the deceased owner in approximately 2013 in a dismantled state. The vendor advises us that the late owner stripped, checked, and rebuilt the engine and gearbox, replacing parts as necessary. Reassembly was started and the engine, gearbox and assorted other parts refitted to the frame, but the work was never completed, and leaves a rewarding project for a new owner to finish. It is believed to be substantially complete, but prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the completeness, or otherwise, of this project. Documentation comprises a current V5C, a continuation RF60 buff log book dating from 1941, and a purchase receipt.
