FOR SALE & WANTED

WANTED:

Hi everyone, hope you are all keeping well. I am hoping for a bit of help, I have been restoring a 46 500 Matchless for a while now and have come to the assembly only to find that the frame is from a 49 not a 46.

There are a few differences that I have discovered that I cannot work around. I was hoping that someone would have a frame of a 46 they would sell. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone, Steve. 0419579022.

1938 AJS 2A V-TWIN FOR SALE

Hello Dave,

I’m getting on in years, have to move off the property and I am downsizing. 

I’m selling my 1938 AJS  VTwin.

It is an older restoration and unfortunately, the chrome is lifting from the wheels and the exhaust pipes need re-chroming. I am asking $30,000 ONO.

FOR SALE: 1954 Matchless G3LS and 1954 AJS 16MS

$6,200 ea

 

Back in 2011/12 I imported 3 bikes from the UK.  One was a Matchless 1965 G15CSR which I sold 3 years ago. It had a Norton 750 motor and I could not start it. 

The other two are a 1954 AJS 16MS 350 and a 1954 Matchless G3LS 350.

I bought those as they have the full width front hub so might be easier to stop and being 350’s they are an easy bike to handle and maintain. My mate, David Shannon suggested he would like one so he took the Matchless and I kept the AJS.

 Again, we were both accountants and have always been short on time, knowhow and space and neither of us have ridden the machines much at all.  We both agree that these machines should be in the hands of someone who will use them and thus are for sale at a fair market value.

 The Matchy has recently been got out and cleaned up and started by local old bike nutters down Bega way so it is operational, original and the numbers re all correct. Ident numbers on crankcase 54/G3LS 24893

 The AJS also has been got out into the sunlight, dusted down and started so it also is operational, original and numbers are all correct. Ident numbers on crankcase 54/16MS 23104

Both are as unpacked from the shipping crate from the UK complete with the original UK rego number plates.  The machines can be traced through the AMC factory records and the UK MOT books. Both are lovely, original examples of the AMC machines. Our research and advice suggests we ask $6200 for each bike.

 

 Contact David Shannon for the Matchless G3LS on 0419 120 553. David is down Bega way but can get it up to Goulburn

 

Contact Grant Pearce for the AJS 16MS on 0428 220 555.  I am in Goulburn.

 

Cheers & thanks.

FOR SALE: 1957 AJS 18CS

$12,400

Firstly I have an 1957 AJS 18CS which by definition is a 500cc, all alloy short stroke compy.

I purchased this bike in Goulburn as a project in 1995/6.  Steve Hazelton had imported it from the USA (Oregan).I had a love for these British bikes but being an accountant and in town I had no room, no knowhow and no time to undertake the project. It sat in my garage for many years but I was lucky enough to have a client who is a smash repairer and motorcycle nutter (Bert Heath) and met some friends in the Goulburn Classic Riders Club (Wayne Adams – bike nutter, AJS owner and historian).

Bert took care of the frame and tinware restoration and Bert passed the machine to Ray Dole – another bike enthusiast who did all the assembly and mechanicals. I picked it up from Ray in 2015.  Ray showed me how to start it, we loaded it on my trailer. I put it in my garage and that’s where it has stayed.

I purchased all the bits and pieces from AJS & MOC UK and the result is a lovely operational bike.  I have not yet placed the AJS transfers and gold stripes on the bike but I have them.

Wayne, who registered for the Jampot Oberon Rally, came around and we quickly got it firing after checking oil, fuel, etc.  I would think the battery would have had it but no battery needed to start it.

 

Contact Grant Pearce for the AJS on 0428 220 555.  I am in Goulburn.

FOR SALE:

I’m in Toronto NSW (Newcastle) – phone 0427965934, email: jasper.1912@bigpond.com.

  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?
      Regards
      J Henry

  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
    Shelsy Walsh Engine – The only one in Australia”
    His Family has this Bike complete::: and would like to get a price ??
    of what it would be Worth? -could any of your Members Help in this situation as they have asked me to follow up on their behalf
    Thank you ALL -and keep Riding Safely– Paul Drewes

    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.
      Regards…………..David

  5. Getday David, recently shattered my speedo drive on 55 ajs twin after putting bike back together. I read this is a common problem if not assembled correctly. The book is pretty basic on where spacers and washers go. Could you please give me any idea best regards Tom.
