1925 AJS 349cc De Luxe Sporting Model E4
Registration no. TT 4061
Frame no. 52180
Engine no. 52180
In 1925 there were three side valve 350s in the AJS range, including the De Luxe Sporting Model E4, which was fitted with TT bars, sporting footrests, internal expanding front and rear brakes, and a hand operated clutch. The original RF60 buff logbook for TT 4061 shows that it was first registered in Devon on 29th May 1925 to Mr. William Curzon of Holsworthy. He moved house twice after that, but remained in Devon and in possession of TT 4061. It was purchased by the vendor's father sometime in the 1930s (although not registered in his name until 1970), and is believed to have been used occasionally for pleasure on fine days and holidays, and to visit the TT races. It is thought to have last run in the 1960s, after which it was retired to dry storage until the present day. Ownership passed to the present owner on his father's death. It remains remarkably unmolested, save for a coat of paint at some time in its life, and is all matching numbers (frame, engine, and gearbox) with only one previous owner before the father and son. The engine turns freely, and the gears select. It is fitted with acetylene lighting, but the generator appears to have gone missing at some time. In need of re-commissioning or restoration, this wonderful AJS presents an increasingly rare opportunity for a new owner to re-commission, sympathetically restore, or fully renovate. Documentation comprises an old-type V5, and the aforementioned RF60 logbook.
