Not quite sure what you'd call it.. AJonda? HJS?

AJS Stormer with a built XL250 motor.

.





Guy gave me the frame in return for taking the engine out and giving it back to him. Decided it had been too hacked to justify putting another XL motor in and ended up selling it off...

Boy I was young then!!
WOW I had a 72 TS125J Duster.....wish I would of had one of those kits on mine. I remember seeing a guy that had a similar bike racing at "spillway" motocross track in santa maria california...can't remember his name or the named of the guy that built it for him...

I still have the bike but it is a bit rusty and in dire need of a complete restoration.

I've spent over an hour reading this thread tonight !

Interesting.
Just the opposite of this...A British engine in a Japanese (CR250) frame.

Fooled me. From here it looks alot like a standard BSA OIF single frame and swingarm.

I think you are right, the frame has the chain adjust on the swingarm pivot ( stock on BSA) and CR's didn't have a rear fender hoop like that, plus the main cradle area is so much taller than a CR, really neat B50 though

Somewhere along the line the definition of scrambler changed!
