I am listing this for a friend of mine. Neil. who is not on eBay. His number is 07970 279180 if you wish to ask him direct questions. The bike is a 1957 AJS model 18S which is a 500cc overhead valve single with an alloy head. the bike has its current V5C present and is on an age related none transferable registration number. The bike is classes in the log book as historic. so will be tax and MOT exempt. The machine its self has been restored and is very very tidy but not mint. Please look carefully at the pictures as they say a lot about the machine. New wheels. tyres. exhaust. seat. shocks. forks rebuilt. re-wired etc etc the list goes on. Lots spent. The bike has been restored and then not used as is often the case. A lot of folk just like restoring them I suppose. The machine has an original Smiths Chronometric speedo fitted which has been set back to zero and is now reading 16 miles. so I assume thats how many miles its done since all the work was carried out. The bike starts and runs and lights up with no undue noise or smoke from the engine. all sounds well. Its looking for a rider now I guess. So. a very well presented machine. which has had bags of money spent on it. is registered and is ready to go. These big 500cc singles are a little hard to find and are good working bikes. no reserve. Viewing welcome. 01246 411977 for an appointment. Collection preferred although I can arrange for delivery within the mainland UK by courier for ??100. Any payment direct to Neil please as this is not my machine.
