Question Help Identifying Antique British V-Twin??

Hi Gents,

I have a modest collection of early photographs/postcards relating to British Despatch Rider Motorcycles.

I'm having trouble identifying this bike. I think its an early Brough but the " J " tank emblem is throwing me.

Any knowledgeable chaps out there who can help?

Cheerio,

Roy

It's AJS. This is almost(probably some year difference) identical if you look closely

Hi,

Thanks for that. Yes near identical. I note the one in the link is 1928 and mine is around 1914, so differences in tank etc. But looks like a strong contender for sure.

Cheerio,

Roy

Thanks mate,

I think that's it.. Well done.

I can now see (obviously ) that the tank badge likely said AJS but with the A & S worn slightly.

Very much appreciated.

Cheers,

Roy
