1928 AJS K7 350cc...

By 213hardy      
... I thinkTongue Taken at Beamish on Saturday.

AJS was the name used for cars and motorcycles made by the Wolverhampton, company A. J. Stevens & Co. Ltd, from 1909 to 1931, by then holding 117 motorcycle world records. After the firm was sold, the name continued to be used by Matchless, Associated Motorcycles and Norton-Villiers on four-stroke motorcycles till 1969, and since the name's resale in 1974, on lightweight, two-stroke scramblers and today on small-capacity roadsters and cruisers.

Both are great, but I prefer the sepia version filling the frame.

The rider tinkering makes a very natural image, Den. I think I prefer the original, the sepia is a bit too 'clean' for the effect - needs distressing (in designer terms) - that's just personal preferance, not a criticism.

Yes indeed - very much an AJS.
The riders of such old bikes seemed to spend inordinate amounts of time 'tickling the carburetter', this pose being typical. And the sepia is perfect!

He's fettling it, a good North East word that ought to be adopted nationally it's so evocative.
Re Dave's comment, I tend to agree, I don't like sepia too warm as it can look 'muddy'. Try reducing saturation on this a bit, I think it would cool it down.
