The tank has the AJS logo on it, as does the chair. The plate indicates Northumberland County Council, 1926/7, but I would have thought that the bike might be a bit later.

This is South Africa, not Britain.

With a very British looking plate up front, though. It might explain the fact that the bike looks mid 30s rather than mid 20s.

South Africa used white-on-black plates from 1914 until reflective plates arrived in 1970s (maybe 1976, depending which state adopted when??). T was Transvaal, with TY the town/district of Klerksdorp; no dates known.

Looks a twin cylinder and shape of tank paintwork and suspension bits suggests a c 1940 AJS Model 2A. The chair looks a bit more contemporary as does the badge on chair.

I just managed tha AJS bit! Being from near Wolverhampton, which was in Staffs until the 1974 local govt reorg, I have a soft spot for the W’ton makes. And Villiers, of course.

That’s a very British looking tax disc holder just to the left of the headlamp as we look at it. Do we really think it was “Made for ZA”?
