Associated Motor Cycles' offerings in the important 350cc market sector were the Matchless G3L and AJS Model 16, models essentially identical in all respects apart from their tank badges. Testing one of these stalwarts in 1961, Motor Cycling recorded a modest mean top speed of 76mph but found that when toured at a relaxed pace across country an excellent 86 miles per gallon was achievable. This particular AJS Model 16MS won the 'Best British Bike' award at the Barnsley Custom and Classic Bike Show in July 2007 while owned by Mr Brian Inhan, from whom it was purchased by the current vendor in July 2008. Offered for sale because of the owner's ill health, the machine is described as in generally good condition and comes with the aforementioned trophy, some spare gaskets, instruction manual and parts list (copies), current SORN acknowledgement letter and Swansea V5.
- The machine has been withdrawn from the sale and we apologies for any inconvenience caused.
