AJS 1929 M 6 350cc two port OHV frame # M 105332 engine #M 6 105073
For some 6 years the “ Bigport” series had been very successful, but in 1928 it was decided it was time to give the 1929 model range a totally new appearance.
No less than 20 “ improvements” were made and they were certainly no detail changes.
To name a few: a redesigned frame giving a lower saddle height, a graceful saddle tank , separate oil tank, enclosed valve mechanism and last but not least brightly colored side panels on the tank.
The Model range spanned from the 9.96 HP twin passenger combo ( M1) to the 2.48 HP lightweight ( M12); AJS started numbering with the highest capacity models, which was rather unusual with model numbering systems then.
Three models represented the 350 cc class: M6 in single and double port versions, and M7 that sported an OHC engine.
This M6 is unrestored and comes complete with electric lighting system and Bosch magdyno.
