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. Our vendor tells us that this original matching numbers example starts readily and is in running condition. It is still fitted with an alloy cylinder and a competition wader magneto but no dynamo or lights as original. Among the documents is an MOT certificate dated April 1987 where the mileage is quoted as 518. The odometer currently shows 702 miles, supporting the fact that the bike has had very little use in current ownership. The bike is on SORN and is offered with a V5c.
