Registration no. HHN 230
Frame no. to be advised
Engine no. 46/16M 2935
Associated Motor Cycles' post-war offerings in the important 350cc market sector were the Matchless G3 and AJS Model 16, models essentially identical in all respects apart from their tank badges and magneto positioning. 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. Although badged as a Matchless, this machine has a 16M engine, which means that it is either an AJS with a Matchless tank or a Matchless with an AJS motor. The machine is presented in 'barn find' condition having been off the road in cool dry storage for many years. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
