Fred Dibnah's Motorcycle
Reading Freds book he mentions his AGS motorcycle. I had never heard of this make, is there such a bike or is it a mistake. I have found a motorcycle called an AGS which appears to have been built around the mid-70's. What period is Fred Dibnah writing about? Ed.

I believe it was 1927. Had Carbide Headlamp.
