    Old smokers can be scramblers too...from a time before the term "MX" was universal and before scramblers became street bikes with high pipes! :lol3

    Wow! 1930's Matchbox? Of course back then it could have been a scrambler, trials bike, daily commuter, touring bike....

    Whenever I see a Trials AJS, I am reminded of "Jackson's Dab"

    I hoped a google search would result in a vintage trials video, but this showed up instead.

    :rofl

    Gordon Jackson won the 1961 Scottish Six Day with only one dab. Peter Fraser took the picture, but back in those days of film, he had no idea if he timed it right to catch Jackson with his foot down until after the trial was over and he got the film developed.

    That record held till this year,

    Here he is in more recent times with the AJS restored by the Sammy Miller museum. Sam and the famed Ariel GOV132 on the right.
