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.

Barn-Find Classic Motorcycles

The new Buzz phrase in the Classic Motorcycle world is "Barn Find".

A "Barn Find" bike is a classic motorcycle that is discovered abandoned, usually in a derelict condition. The term comes from its tendency to be discovered in rarely frequented places such as barns.

Many of the buyers of barn finds tend to be motorcycle collectors and they offer to buy the motorcycle so as to clean it, fix it, and in many cases fully restore it. Barn find classic motorcycles are a popular purchase both in unrestored and fully restored conditions and have reached high prices at motorcycle auctions worldwide.

A genuine "Barn Find" is the fantasy find of many a classic motorcycle collector!

Motorcycle Chrome Plating

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.
