ajs 7r

We spoke to the owner of this 7r at killalane he was there for the classic run on the sunday during the racing,a very nice and informative man,its a 1948 model this we know because the tank has bolts going through it to keep it on ,the owner has had this bike since 1961 and bought it after a deal with a matchless g9 he had which broke his heart,origionally the 7r would have had a 21" front and 20" rear wheel but he has 19" rims laced on for a better choice of tyres,as if this bike was not special enough it has a twin leading rear hub which in 48 points to this being a works AJS six of which were sent to the TT that year,the seat is for his own comfort.i will post some pics to give a idea of the quality of this bike,,,
