1954 AJS 500

This is a 1954 AJS 500, its a good solid running bike but as you can see very tatty.

The pre stripdown ride showed there were a few problems to sort out before stripdown began, most notably the oil pump but they are all sorted now and work can commence.

This will make a nice greenlaner when finished

The bike has been stripped down and the frame stripped ready for painting with high quality 2 pack paint.
