Overview[edit | edit source]

AJS R7 Track Racer

This 350cc overhead camshaft machine dating from 1930 is the sole survivor from a small fleet of works machines with engines from 350cc to 750cc. They were built for racing at Brooklands and record-breaking both at the Surrey track and in France. The Wolverhampton factory’s speed equipe was managed by wealthy enthusiast Nigel Spring and its riders, including Bert Denly, Freddie Hicks and George Rowley, notched up many successes. This machine’s frame is three inches longer than standard for high-speed stability while the girder fork front suspension floats on ball bearings, rather than plain metal bushes. The close-ratio gearbox and clutch are special factory items and a ‘Brooklands can’ silencer is fitted to comply with circuit regulations. The all-over silver finish was a Spring trademark.
