  1. Hi Clare
    Do you still have the bike for sale? Would definitely be interested – it is my vintage. Regards 0419946027.

  2. I have a beautiful 1921 Model D V Twin 800 cc for sale. It is all electric with a heavy duty fuel pump and comes with a factory fitted AJS sidecar part restored. E copies of owners manual and parts manual.

    This is a huge motorcycle. I love it to bits and want it to go to an AJS enthusiast.

    The provenance is well established and it is one of two bought from the factory in 1922.

    The bike is in Cairns and the price is not negotiable.

    Pics on request. $ 24,000.00

    1. Hi Phil,
      I have three quarters of a 1921 D model. Parts missing are the cams, carburettor, head bridges, valves, rear mudguard, footboards and wheels. Would you have any of these parts for sale, or information as to where I may be able to source them please?

  3. I was just seeking this info for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

  4. Looking for advise? Back in the 1950s my friend [ Now Passed} Ross Pentecost was a Matchless Rider Racing at Bathurst on his Original

    1. Hi Paul, Thanks for the notice. It’s hard to put a price on such a classic. I suggest you contact one of the international motor auction houses (Like Bonhams or Shannons), as this would give you worldwide coverage and a top dollar valuation.
