When it comes to post-war British four-stroke twins Triumph, BSA and Norton tend to grab the limelight. But there is worthy opposition from other British manufacturers, in particular the AJS/Matchless AMC Twins. The AMC twins have a reputation as solid and stodgy performers but that doesn’t do them justice.
Unlike the more fancied British triumvirate the AMC twins were less highly strung and provided their owners years of reliable, if unexciting, riding. These were motorcycles that would last over 110,000km before a major overhaul, a rare feature for 1950s motorcycles. Associated Motorcycles are generally known for being V-twin powered cruisers that are well made, comfortable, and reliable.
Described as in generally good condition, this machine should require only minimal re-commissioning before returning to the road. Stored in dry storage and located near Ottawa Ontario.
