THANK YOU FOR VIEWING MY 1955 AJS 16MCS TRIALS MACHINE. I HAVE OWNED IT FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND ENJOYED RIDING IT ON A FEW GREENLANE TRIPS AND THE ODD SPORTING TRIAL IN THAT TIME. IT HAS SPENT MOST OF IT'S TIME IN MY LANGWISHING IN MY GARAGE RECIEVING ADMIRING GLANCES FROM ME NOW AND AGAIN. THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW THE MODEL WILL SEE THAT IT HAS BEEN UPDATED SOMETIME IN THE PAST FOR USE IN SERIOUS PRE65 TRIALS WITH REPOSITIONED FOOTRESTS AND A LIGHTWEIGHT REAR SUB FRAME. HIS ONE IS ADAPTED FOR THE SHORTER SHOCKS. OMPACT OIL TANK. ALLY ENGINE PLATES. ONCENTRIC CARB. VOLKES AIR FILTER AND PERHAPS OUT OF CHARACTER A BRITISH REH FRON HUB. ALTHOUGH NOT AS "TRICK" ASW MOST OF TODAYS PRE65 TRIALERS IT WOULD STILL PROVIDE AND EXCELLENT RIDE IN THE EASIER OF THESE EVENTS. THE ORIGINAL RIMS ARE STILL IN PLACE (19" REAR) BUT SOME PITTING TO THE CHROME SURFACE. THE TANK IS THE CORRECT ALLY ONE WITH ONE OR TWO SMALL DENTS. MY CLUB BADGE ON THE FRONT NUMBER PLATE WILL BE REMOVED PRIOR TO SALE. THE MECHANICAL CONDITION IS EXCELLENT NO SMOKE. NO KNOCKS. ULLS STRONGLY AND EASY STARTER FROM IT'S LUCAS RACING MAGNETO.
