Associated Motor Cycles announced its post-war range of Matchless and AJS heavyweight singles in June 1945. Housed in a rigid frame with Teledraulic front fork, the ruggedly built overhead-valve engine drove via a four-speed gearbox. Hairpin valve springs were adopted for 1949 and a swinging-arm frame introduced, the latter initially for export only, models so-equipped being suffixed 'S'. Cleverly, AMC had devised this frame by the simple expedient of producing a new suspension-carrying rear sub-frame that bolted on in place of the old rigid back end. Thus it proved a relatively simple matter for owners of older rigid models to update them. The partially disassembled Matchless G80 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.
