A relic of the first half of the last century, the 350cc capacity class of motorcycle harks back to a time when having such a category made sense. Quicker than a commuter 250cc, but without the insurance fees tied in with owning a more sporting 500cc, this class of bike allowed for a happy medium for the discerning rider. It also makes for a unique donor bike for a custom project, as shown in this build from the Young Guns Speed Shop. Built for the Swiss-bike Expo, this AJS pre unit bike is a product of 14 hour a day, 7 day weeks, with the final product a hard as nails board track tribute appropriately named ‘Fabilas’.

Ward Brothers Collection

Posted on July 15, 2009 by Scott in Classic. 2 comments

This Saturday 19th July the Ward Brothers’ Collection of vintage motorcycles and automobiles go to auction. The auction will take place at Henley-on-Thames, UK but overseas bidders are welcome via phone/online. For those collectors out there this will be one you won’t want to miss. They have a range of vintage bikes from a 1920’s AJS through to 1950’s Vincent’s, Norton’s and BSA’s (if only i had room in my garage!). They even have a very rare 1928 McEvoy-JAP that’s expected to sell for more than 120,000 pounds (thats around $200,000 us). If you are interested or just want to drool over the auction catalogue visit Bonhams.
