1950 AJS Model 18 For Sale (1)1950 AJS Model 18 for Sale, We cannot remember seeing a better AJS Model 18 than this. Drives wonderfully, and she kicks over first or second time… Without fail !. simply just beautiful, obviously she has a couple of very minor age-related marks, but you’ll have to look hard for them. She also leaks a little oil, but if you live to this age, I guess, so will you !…….

There has been a lot of money spent on this classic historic AJS, she has to be the most beautiful motorcycle you have ever seen and has been treated as a member of the last family throughout the last few years.

1950 AJS 500 cc Rigid Model 18 500cc.

This is a much loved AJS called “Daisy”…. and was a very, very reluctant sale by the last owner!, loved and cherished for nearly 12 years. There are only three former keepers of this motorcycle since March 1950.

Daisy has won a number of classic North East motorcycle events when the last owner showed her, including the following:
1. 2017 Classics in Corbridge: Best Classic Motorcycle
2. 2017 “Classics at the Castle”: Best Motorcycle in Show
3. 2018 Included in the private entrants show section of the prestigious Stafford Classic Motorcycle Show
4. 2019 Tyne Valley Classic Motorcycle Club: Special Award Category
Daisy’s last show was in 2019, all trophies and photographs Daisy has won will be included in the sale, including the years of 2017-2019 as they deserve to go with her to her new owner.

The AJ has been polished and pampered literally, within an inch of her life every week over the past 11 years by the last owner, she certainly deserves to be ridden more that she has been recently.

She has always been stored in a heated, fully carpeted garage so we have been told.

The new owner can either collect Daisy him / herself, or arrange their own courier and I will ensure that the bike is safely given to the courier for onward delivery to the new owner. The bike also comes with receipts of work done and a number of manuals for the bike.
A wonderful opportunity to own a beautiful bike in more than excellent condition.

Take a look at the photographs of Daisy,…… they really do speak for themselves…… you will not be disappointed
