1960' AJS Model 31 De Luxe
This is a smart 1960 AJS 650 in "De Luxe" trim:
- magneto ignition
- dynamo electrics
- QD rear wheel
- steering damper
It has the full duplex loop frame, new for 1960, which is reputed to steer better than the earlier single downtube design. Handling on the new Dunlop TT100's is light and confidence-inspiring.
Recorded mileage 57,108 (from looking at the MoT records).
The bike has an attractive and transferable registration number.
The engine is stamped G12, and in an unusual location (see photo).
The bike has a superb electronic magneto from BTH which automatically regulates ignition timing. Due to the energy and precision of the electronic magneto, it starts first time in all weathers. The engine is smooth and powerful, well able to cruise at the legal limit with plenty of power in reserve.
Carburettor and seat are new. Centre stand has a foot lever extension (made from a spare footbrake lever) which makes it easy and safe to lift the bike onto the stand, even if you are a pensioner like me. There is some rust on the rear wheel rim.
A history file is included, showing the work done over the past year (over £2000), and MoT records going back several years. Bike comes with new MoT, ready for the road.
We are in the Bath/Bristol area. Happy to arrange viewings at most times of day.
