Team Obsolete has yet another Barn Find! It is a one-off 1961 ex-Bob McIntyre AJS 7R Special. It was envisioned by Bob’s longtime sponsor/engineer Joe Potts with a frame built by Pim Fleming.
Bob McIntyre was perhaps Scotland’s most accomplished rider. He was the first to lap the Isle of Man TT at over 100 mph! Sadly, he died in 1962 after an aquaplane-induced crash at Oulton Park, England.
The Bob Mac Special has been out of the public eye for more than three (3) decades. Team Obsolete will change all that! Dave Roper will be racing it in 2024!
The bike will be on display at Team Obsolete Headquarters during our annual Holiday Festival, along with some other Bob Mac bikes and a new MV Agusta 800/3 Superveloce “Ago” plus some other new historic acquisitions.
Team Obsolete is sponsored by Vanson Leathers, RedLine Synthetic Lubricants, and Buchanan Spoke & Wheel.
