163 KRB was acquired by the vendor in 1995, at which time it was needing work. He commenced the restoration, fitting alloy rims, hydraulic clutch and front brake conversions by Malcolm Saggers, stainless steel exhaust system, 12 volt electrics, and a electronic ignition system, completing the task in 1997. Thereafter, he used the machine on a regular basis, even taking it on a club tour of New Zealand. In 2009 the machine was becoming heavy for the owner to use, so he fitted a sidecar (since removed) which allowed him a further two years of limited use. Unused since 2011, the AJS will now need re-commissioning. Documentation comprises a current V5C, old V5, and an owners club dating certificate.
