Associated Motor Cycles returned to the 250cc class in 1958 with a brace of all-new models. Shared by the AJS Model 14 and Matchless G2, the overhead-valve engine incorporated its oil tank within the crankcase and appeared to be of unitary construction, although a separate gearbox was retained. Offered here is an example of the reputedly more powerful Sports version, introduced for 1962, which featured semi-drop handlebars and chromed mudguards, fuel tank and chain guard. Offered for restoration, '952 CBK' has been in the current ownership for many years and comes with its original logbook, an old-style V5 registration document and an MoT certificate that expired in 1984, which is almost certainly the last time the machine was used. It should be noted that the engine has been changed.
