AJS was the name used for cars and motorcycles made by the Wolverhampton company A.J. Stevens & Co. Ltd, from 1909 to 1931; a company which held 117 motorcycle world records. After the firm was sold, the name continued to be used by Matchless, Associated Motorcycles and Norton-Villiers on four-stroke motorcycles until 1969.

Originally registered on 3rd June 1955 this twin-cylinder 500cc AJS is in delightful condition. Having formed part of a private collection this motorcycle has resided in a heated, de-humidified mancave. We are advised by the non-biking vendor that this motorcycyle runs well and will be presented for an MoT test prior to the auction. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a good history folder, this AJS will grace any collection.
