AJS 16MC

AJS 16MC
AJS based its evergreen 16 350 cc single on a WW2 Matchless military motorcycle. When motorcycle trials gained popularity, the reliable and economical AJS proved ideal. The 16MC (‘C’ for competition) was tweaked by AJS to suit the sport: it was given a welded duplex tubular frame, and a raised exhaust and footrests to improve ground clearance. Hugh Viney, one of the sporting stars of the day, set a record by riding the 16MC to victory in the Scottish Six Days Trial three years in a row, from 1947 to 1949.
