Closely connected with the British Cycle Manufacturing Co

Royal Ajax were motorcycles produced by the Silver Queen Cycle Co, between 1904 and 1906.

The machine was a typical primitive fitted with a 2.5 h.p. engine, upright in a cradle within the frame. It had belt drive and rigid forks and was probably an Alldays and Onions model with a different tank transfer. It was only listed until 1906 and nothing more was heard of it.
