DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION
AJS was the name used for cars and motorcycles made by A. J. Stevens & Co. Ltd, from 1909 to 1931 which was, by then, holding 117 motorcycle world records. In 1938, Matchless and AJS became part of Associated Motorcycles (AMC). Under AMC the AJS badge may have been put on the 'bread and butter' Matchless motorcycles, but Collier & Son, the owners of Matchless, were mindful of the AJS racing heritage and used the name on some innovative racing machinery.
This handsome AJS was first registered on 9th February 1954 and has recently formed part of a private collection, residing in a heated, de-humidified mancave. Presenting in delightful condition, even though the fastidious vendor does not ride motorcycles, this AJS 16MS will be presented to auction in full running order and with a fresh MoT test certificate. Supplied with a V5C and a Certificate of Authenticity together with a modest history file.
