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.
