If you ask any knowledgeable enthusiast to name some of the best motorbikes of the 1920s you can be pretty much guaranteed to hear the mention of the AJS Big Port. If you think 1920s vintage bikes are all slow, quiet and boring, you have never ridden one of these. Their distinctive exhaust can be heard a long way away and they became famous when they were surprisingly entered by the factory in the 1921 Senior TT where they left the 500cc bikes of the day in their wake and won.
Condition: the following is a brief description of the motorbike from the owner: Originating in Norfolk it was raced on the grass pre-WW2 and is believed to have been a Syd (skid) Plevin bike and it still retains a Plevin straight through exhaust. Fully restored over a long period in the 1970s and 1980s and in current ownership from 2007, since when it has been used for club runs and at bearings sorted and it is running well. The tyres are starting to show signs of age and may need replacing before the new owner takes to the road.
