British Motorcycles


AER were motorcycles produced from 1937 to 1940.
  • 1937 Albert Reynolds first showed his AER model during the Isle of Man races - it had a 340cc twin-cylinder, air-cooled, all-alloy two-stroke engine with pressed in liners for the one-piece cylinder casting and a one-piece head, four-speed Burman gearbox, oil-pump lubrication and Webb Forks forks fitted to a conventional frame. Albert Reynolds had, however, previously produced special versions of the Scott in the early 1930s.
  • 1938 Production of the AER twin began, with an Amal induction tract, flywheel magneto and chain-driven dynamo and oil pump.
  • 1939 The twin was joined by a model with single-cylinder Villiers engines of either 249cc or 350cc, using the same frame and running gear.
  • 1940 World War II brought production to a close and it never re-started, although Albert Reynolds continued to sell the last remaining models from his Liverpool shop where many remained, on the top floor, long after the war.
