Associated Motorcycles AJS 16M Competition 350cc – 1958 Restored Motorcycle

Associated Motorcycles AJS 16M Competition 350cc - 1958

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.

Motorcycle Chrome Plating

Bikes Restored Helpful Hint ...

Even if your Motorcycles chromed parts are deeply pitted a great result can be obtained from an automotive chrome plating specialist. Even dents can be filled or removed.

First the plater will sand at various grits to cut away unwanted, rust, pits and scratches. The depth of the initial sand will depend on the material and its thickness. A heavy coat of copper plate is often used to fill the pits followed by a light polish to flatten the surface. If pitting is severe the chroming specialist can fill them with silver soldier or braze welds. These repairs are then gently linished to return a flat smooth surface.

Most motorcycle chrome plating utilises triple plating comprising copper, nickel then chrome plating. The copper makes a good base coat for conductivity, the nickel is the shiny silver and the chrome plating gives the nickel a lovely luster and protection.
