Registration no. ESU 875 (see text)
Frame no. 28301
Engine no. 48/18 6923 B
Associated Motor Cycles announced its post-war range of AJS and Matchless 'heavyweight' singles in June 1945. Coded Model 18 and G80 respectively, the two 500cc models shared the same 93mm stroke as their 350cc brethren, coupled to an 82.5mm bore. Housed in a rigid frame with Teledraulic front fork, the ruggedly built overhead-valve engine drove via a four-speed gearbox. This AJS Model 18 is believed to be an older restoration undertaken by HMP Full Sutton. A total of 1,562 miles is displayed on the odometer, which may be the distance travelled since the rebuild. There is no registration document with this Lot; however, the registration mark is on the HPI database. Accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to this motorcycle's registration status prior to bidding. The machine is offered for re-commissioning/restoration and sold strictly as viewed.
