I am selling my Matchless in favour of my Honda CL350 with electric start!
The history available with the bike shows it was registered in Scotland in 1961 and it still keeps its original registration although is is now non-transferable as it was recovered by DVLA in 1994. The bike seems to have had 4 phases of recommissioning and restoration starting in 1994 when it was reregistered. The then owner Mr Newland used the AJS/Matchless Club to help reclaim the number.

In 2007 it was bought for £625 and some work was done. The owner Mr Butler seems to have bought a few spokes!

An acquaintance of mine bought the bike in 2007 and with aid of a friend who was a lathe operator/ engineer at Kings North Power station started on a complete rebuild involving many new parts. This restoration stalled and I bought the boxes of parts in 2016 and completed the rebuild.
A quick summary of the parts fitted, new at the time.
Rims, spokes tubes, tyres, linings wheel spindle, fork bronze bearings and fork chrome shrouds.
Rebored, piston, main bearings camshaft bearings, replacement head, valves, guides and springs,
Most clutch parts except basket.
Converted to 12 volt with solid state regulator and new wiring.
Primary sprocket and chain.
Rear chain and sprocket.
Exhaust pipe and silencers, rear shock shrouds.
Carb rebuild.
Probably many, many other parts that I have forgotten about.
Two areas of improvement are the gear change selector spring that seems to be weak (good replacement provided) and the primary chain case metal seal holder (good replacement provided).
The tank was resprayed what looked like red in the paint factors shop but turned out a bit orange, it makes a good talking point with other Matchless owners!
The bike is in road worthy condition.

just changed all the fuel lines (only 3 years old) maybe ethanol damaged!
