AER were motorcycles produced from 1937 to 1940.

1937 Albert Reynolds first showed his AER model - it had a 340cc twin-cylinder, air-cooled, all-alloy engine, four-speed Burman gearbox, oil-pump lubrication and Webb 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.

1939 The twin was joined by a model with single Villiers engines of either 249cc or 350cc.

1940 World War II brought production to a close and it never re-started, although Reynolds continued to sell the last remaining models from his Liverpool shop.
