AJS 1929  M 6  350cc  two port   OHV  frame # M 104571    engine #M 6 104571

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 with built in speedometer, 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  an older restoration and comes complete with  Lucas electric lighting system.
