It is no surprise that when Speedway and Grass track racing were gaining popularity in the nineteen twenties and thirties, the popular engine of choice was the J.A.P. This dominance was to continue for decades to come, as riders used these motors in proprietary or small-batch production frames. This machine utilises a 4-stud J.A.P. engine in a frame manufactured by its late owner. It features an AMC gearbox, and Amal concentric carburettor. Used for racing during the 1960s by the deceased owner, it has been stored in a large unheated building for many years, and will require re-commissioning or restoration. There are no documents with this lot.
