Associated Motorcycles AJS 16M Competition 350cc – 1958
This motorcycle was bought new from Cooper Bros, Templehill, Troon, Ayrshire and registered 4th January, 1958. It doesn’t have the original Green registration book but it does have the Green Continuation Book from 1976 and the V5C Form.
It is licensed as a Historic Vehicle.
The engine was built by AMC Competition Department and still runs like a dream..
It was used in Trials by members of the Stevenston & District MCC as well as day to day transport like most bikes of that era. With the exception of the alloy 18″ rear rim and tyre and foot rests this is a completely original bike and would grace any Classic Bike Show.
I believe it was entered in the SSDT in the early ’60s but have no official confirmation of this. It has only had two owners since it was restored in 1976.
Last used in the SSDT Centenary Run for 100 Bikes over 100 Miles (number 20), which was held last May around Fort Willian/Spean Bridge forest tracks including Switchback. It completed this Historic run without fault despite horrendous weather during the event.
