1961 7R AJS 350 ex Mike Hailwood Ecurie Sportive. He told me "I hate that bike" - small wonder. He was leading the '61 Isle of Man 350 by a big margin when the engine quit with just 12 miles to go on the last lap. He had already won the 500 on Norton and the 125 and 250 on Hondas, he almost had the lot. Shown here as owned and raced by Alan Puckett in the 80s.
