AJS was the name used for cars and motorcycles made by A. J.
Stevens & Co. Ltd. from 1909 to 1931. which was by then holding
117 motorcycle world records. In 1938. Matchless and AJS became
part of Associated Motorcycles (AMC). Under AMC the AJS badge may
have been put on the 'bread and butter' Matchless motorcycles. but
Collier & Son. the owners of Matchless. were mindful of the AJS
racing heritage. and used the name on some innovative racing
machinery. These racing bikes kept the AJS name alive. In 1935. at
the Olympia Show. an air-cooled SOHC AJS 50° V4 was shown. in 1936
Harold Daniell rode a supercharged race version in the Isle of Man
Senior TT. but despite its high top speed. it lacked acceleration.
In 1939. a water-cooled and supercharged version of the 495 cc AJS
V4 was built to compete against the supercharged BMWs then
dominating racing. In 1939 the dry sump V4 was the first bike to
lap the Ulster Grand Prix course at over 100mph. It weighed 405lb
and its top speed was 135 mph. Then World War II intervened.
This excellent 1939 AJS 1000cc V-Twin was purchased by the vendor
four years ago from a collector who lived locally to him in Kent.
This motorcycle has been restored to the highest of standards
sometime ago but not used hence the odometer reading 1 mile. This
AJS V-Twin is finished in black with chrome fuel tank and is
supplied with a V5C registration document which only shows two
owners from new. This is a rare opportunity to purchase the more
desirable AJS V-Twin over the Matchless version.
