Joe Stevens, father of Harry, George, Jack, and Joe Stevens, first built an internal combustion engine in 1897, although his engines did not enter production until after 1900. His first engines, of 125cc, were sold as proprietary engines to other manufacturers. In 1905, Stevens built a JAP V-twin engined motorcycle, with leading link front forks and a swinging fork at the rear. This was done at the father's Stevens Screw Company, where the family were all employed. A new company, A J Stevens & Co (AJS), was founded by Harry, George, Jack and Joe Stevens on 14th November 1909. After much deliberation of a name, they chose to use initials only, and as only one brother, Jack had two Christian names (Albert John), the new name AJS was christened.
