Dave Roper, pictured with the 1954 AJS 7R3. It is one of only four factory “triple knockers” ever built and was ridden to victory in the 1954 Junior Isle of Man TT race by ex-factory Grand Prix racer Rod Coleman.👍🇮🇲🏁🏆In 1951, AJS development engineer Ike Hatch designed and built the AJS 7R in response to the threat of Italian multi-cylinder machines. It was a three-valved head version of the standard AJS 7R and coined the ‘triple knocker’. It featured a revolutionary six gallon pannier type fuel tank, duplex cradle frame and telescopic forks and the engine produced 35bhp. For 1954, AJS works team manager Jack Williams further developed the bike, lowering the engine in the frame and shortening the cylinder stroke to gain an extra 10bhp.🏍#iomttofficial #teamobsolete #daveroper #AJS #7R3 #tthistory #iomtt #iom_tt #isleofman #classictt #isleofmantt #1950s #roadracing #retro #classicbike @teamobsolete
