One of the most prestigious of all British marques, AJS began in 1897 when Joe Stevens started to build engines at his screw factory at Wolverhampton. His four sons began to produce motorcycles in 1909, using their own engines of various sizes. In the 1920s AJS were consistently successful in motorsport and development work culminated in the awesomely fast mahines that were winning races just before the outbreak of war in 1939. The famous 'Porcupines' carried the AJS banner after the war but the firm declined once they gave up racing in 1954.
