1952 AJS Spring Twin
ENG. 52/20977576941 FRAME : CORRECT
2 UP One of the first models to provide plush seating for the pillion rider, the Spring Twin was a successful design and considered the flagship cruiser of the day offering all the attributes needed for serious long-distance touring. It was light enough to be easily manhandled, with enough performance to avoid boredom or frustration. With this, the Spring Twin offered comfort, good roadholding, straightforward maintenance requirements, good petrol consumption and utter reliability. What more do you need in a machine?
