Hi Mirko - that's an odd one! Are those both filler caps? And it looks like a disc has maybe been soldered in to the top of the tank also.

A bit of googling revealed this: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C947820

AJS MODEL R6 1930 348cc For Sale
Reg. No. UY 7935 original Worcester number First Registered 03:05:1930 Engine Number. 108058 ( V5 and old continuation log book give 3135 which is casting number) Frame Number. R108058 So this is a matching numbers bike. Petrol Tank Number. 20 (to Pat. No. 215567) Gearbox Number. 8089 (Sturmey Archer 3 speed)

So maybe from an old AJS??

Parts are not to bad to come by Bernie TBH...

The panels & tank are sound apart from the paint finish and it only has light corrosion on the alloy in a few places.

And the camshafts are fine!  Cheesy Grin Cheesy.

I love the sound of the V4's.... just that like my Bonnie's engine, I haven't actually head this one yet!

I'd say carry on! Apart from the camshaft issues those bikes were pretty cutting edge in their day.
Of course, if you do decide to abandon the project then there's always room in my workshop for one more project....  Wink

How is parts availability? David Silver is the only source that I've used for older Honda parts before.

Cheers,
Bernie

Ok...

Time to own up...

Stop laughing....


I'm trying to get a VF750F back up and running...  Embarrassed  after 'inheriting' it from my brother after he owed me some cash.





The bike was stored in a barn and was covered in pidgeon shite... It was an Jap import with KPH clocks which I've now changed for Mph. A lot of the bike has had a rough painting job, black all over the engine and the red which looks like a rattle can job. (comes off with petrol).

So far it has had new fork stanchions (OEM, bargain at 130 for the pair), forks seals etc. With the fork legs & brake callipers stripped, they have now been bead blasted and repainted 2-pack satin black. (Need a couple of new pistons to stick the callipers back on).

The corroded rear grabrails and indicator mounts have been stripped & painted in satin black.

Its now sat at the back of my garage looking sad for itself as I figure out whether its worth carrying on with it.



If anyone has any parts I'd be grateful if you'd let me know... that's if anyone will own up to having one of course!

Phil
