AJS 16MS in Movies
Heartbeat EP: 17.01
The Black bike (reg.no LFE 181) LFE 181 is a 1957 AJS The vehicle details for LFE 181 are: Date of Liability 01 03 2009 Date of First Registration 26 04 1957 Year of Manufacture Not Available Cylinder Capacity (cc) 350CC Fuel Type Petrol Vehicle Colour NOT STATED Being a 350 and a sprung frame it is a model 16MS. It looks more like a 1951 model to me.
A second look at the thumbs shows it has a full width rear hub so it could be 1957. Whatever year it is, it is a 16MS.

Isn't it "AJS" that I read on the tank? (If not, well BSA?) Compare and contrast.......... http://www.steadfastcycles.com/cart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=7 http://britishbikebits.com/4-red-tank-badges-pair-bsa-goldstar#.VJxUyYoN8 I would say Wolverhampton not Birmingham. AJS 18S (if 500) or 16MS if 350 (1951/53)
Origin: United Kingdom

One of the bikers RW meets in younger days. MGD 552 = Glasgow, Feb-March 1954
AJS - probably a 350 16MS. I thought 1955 was the first year for the full width front hub. Maybe this bike is an early production example.

Pick'n'mix. Better definition version online shows plate on right is YPP 554 = July-Sept 56. An AMC single, BSA A7/A10 and something with a Villiers twin engine. On the left a 1952 AJS 16MS. I had one as my first bike. The Villiers-engined bike maybe a customised Royal Enfield Turbo Twin?
Not 'til '64. If '56 it'll be a Villiers 2T motor (new on the market then), fitted to all sorts of cottage industry stuff but we can discount Greeves and Norman from the "proper" forks.
