The rigid framed AJS Model 16M 350 cc single was developed in 1945 from the military Matchless G3/L World War II motorcycle. Well proven in war service, the 350 cc single remained in production selling large numbers to the civilian market well into the 1960s. Simple and practical, the Model 16 needed minimal maintenance and was very economical—ideal during petrol rationing.
This AJS, described as excellent in all respects by the vendor, was manufactured in 1949 and is supplied with a V5 document and current MoT certificate valid until May 2010. This 350cc motorcycle is a great example of this legendary model.
