The AJS 500cc Model 18 and 18s are almost identical to the matchless G80 and both were produced in the same AMC London factory from 1945 to 1966. These bikes represent the end of the era of big British singles. The engine was released just postwar with a compression ratio of 5:9:1, necessary because of the low quality fuel available in Britain immediately after the war. British singles were designed to make the best of the fuel available. Post war petrol rationing continued until 1950 and it was several years before performance fuels were generally available in the UK. The model 18s low compression did mean it was easy to start and had better performance and fuel economy than the fast cars of the time. By 1951 the model 18 had an alloy cylinder head and the competition models had also an alloy cylinder (with steel liner) where the barrel fins went all the way to the base. The magneto was moved in front of the cylinder on the matchless G80 for 1952. The earlier model did not have the magneto - the separate magneto was directly above the dynamo behind the cylinder.
