In June 1945 Associated Motorcycles announced its post-war range of AJS and Matchless heavyweight single cylinder motorcycles to the world. The single cylinder AJS and Matchless bikes were exceptionally successful in both trials and scrambles during the late 1940s and 1950s. The 16M gained a ‘C’ for Competition designation, with factory modifications which included upgrading the frame to a welded duplex tubular frame with an engine cradle. This reduced the weight and allowed for better ground clearance. This machine has been used by many owners in the Bristol area over the years. It is fitted with a new frame as the original had been destroyed through use. The new frame was fitted by a previous owner some years ago to 1962 ex. works lightweight specification. This is a stunning looking bike and much work has been carried out including the fitting of a new exhaust system and mudguards. The engine and gearbox were overhauled by a professional engineer in the early 2000s. This year the bike was recommissioned and the petrol tank, which is aluminium, was restored. There are a number of parts available including a spare gearbox and this machine is sold with a three bike trailer. It also comes with a V5c, an older logbook and a selection of bills.
