hi . ere is my 1946 ajs 350cc . very original old bike . it has stood 18 months without being ran . lightly recommissioned yesterday . drained the old oil then put new in . drained old petrol and put fresh in . cleaned the points and it started 2nd kick . runs exactly how it should . very quiet running engine with nothing at all a miss no nasty noises and not smokey . the bike got a full restoration around 10 years ago thus having great patina what you would only achieve from an older restored bike . the clutch and gears all work well . all the wiring is neat and tidy. the lights work ok . horn works and its charging ok . rims and tyres are like new . rims have nice black and gold lined centres . the brakes work fine . nbsp; all the tin ware is original to the bike . nbsp;I've just rode it around 20 miles yesterday and it runs really good . I've since started the bike up couple of times and it started 1st kick every time . nbsp;definitely a well sorted bike . nbsp;the previous owner assured me its only ran maybe 1500 miles since being restored . its very easy to get on the rear stand and also has it side stand . there are one or two small marks here and there on the paint work not really worth mentioning just thought I'd better .
note - when it got restored they left the original suppliers shop badge on the rear mudguard which you never usually see . coliseum motorcycles - Vincent rd - Newport mon - probably long gone now .
the frame and engine numbers are not identical the engines original stamping is 46 16m . which relates to 1946 . so I think it is the original engine . Ive been told just because the frame and engine numbers are not identical to each other does not mean they did not leave the factory together . so it probably is the original . nbsp;but please make your own mind up about this because I'm not really that fussed myself .
so there we have it a very nice useable old british bike which is an excellent runner and a very easy starter .
m. o. t and tax exempt . leaves with its v5c .
