This exquisite 1928 AJS 350 Single was purchased at the Mecum Motorcycle auction , Las Vegas 2019. I was with Robert Castoro walking the floor when he saw this sitting in a corner in the line up of 1500 Bikes. Robert just stopped in his tracks and said, this is a beautiful bike. Beautiful color, beautiful mechanics, beautiful art. It belongs in my house in the entryway. And so it was. Robert Castoro was quite an artist with a flair for exquisite art pieces. This 1928 AJS 350 Single became a center piece of his collection.
AJS was an early producer of quality motorcycles. They were stout, dependable, and race proven.
This is a prime example of the AJS 350 K , single side valve.
The AJS & matchless Owners Club states that 1200 of these machines were made in 1928 and that this bike was in service in Sweden from 1928 until 1932. This bike was restored in 2012 by Gigge Rydh in Sweden and became a part of the famous MC Collection of Stockholm. Imported into the USA for the Las Vegas auction of 2019, it is now available from the estate of Robert Castoro.
