1948 – AJS 7R “BOY RACER” – 350


Built from 1948 to 1963, Associated Motor Cycles’ AJS 7R, known as the “Boy Racer”, was one of the most succesful over-the-counter racing motorcycles of all time. Almost all Britain’s road-race stars of the 1950s and 1960s road a 7R at some stage of their careers, and the model remains a major force in classic racing today. This exemple was acquired in the Isle of Man at the end of the 1959 racing season, brought back to the mainland and always manteined in racing conditions; it achieved the Brands Hatch Superprix in 1989, its last occasion to be raced. From then on, has been only used in classic parades and updated with such parts as Cosworth piston, Quaife 5 speed gearbox and belt primary drive.

Years: 1948-1963
