1953 AJS 16M, 349cc. Registration number NYF 196. Frame number overpainted. Engine number 53/16M/20401.
The rigid framed AJS Model 16M 350 cc single was developed in 1945 from the military Matchless G3/L World War II motorcycle. The company also produced an almost identical motorcycle under the Matchless name as the Matchless G3L with the only difference between the two was that the Matchless carried a magneto at the rear of the cylinder barrel, whereas the AJS magneto was at the front.
In 1953, the Model 16M was modernised with a dual seat replacing the saddle and rear pillion seat, it retained a rigid rear frame until 1949, when pivoted rear suspension controlled by hydraulically dampened spring units designed and made by Matchless became available. The difference was indicated by the S (for springer) designation - 16MS.
NYF was owned by Brian Phillips in 2009 before going to Keith Dowman in 2017. There are MOT certificates from 1999 at 312 miles, then 2010, 2011 and 2012, the last at 528 miles, today it is at 1057 miles.
Sold with the V5C and four MOT's stated.
