1960 G9

Postby rodb » Thu Jan 14, 2021 2:59 pm

I am restoring a 1960 G9 (duplex frame) which had previously been raced in classic races. My problem is it had a aluminium racing tank and a single racing seat and no mudguards.
Can anyone help in identifying or give me pointers or pictures in what to look for in getting an original tank / seat and mudguards.
thanks.

Hi Rodb, have you looked at the period literature in the Archive? http://archives.jampot.dk/

A 500 will have the same parts as an equivalent specification 650, the lightweights use similar guards but are smaller so study a selection of pictures.

Hi,
Roy BACON's book, "AJS & MATCHLESS RESTORATION", could be usefull.
Kind regards.

Hi

A copy of Bacon is very useful, (essential in my view), as are the photos on the Forum for identifying the correct parts.

I wouldn't faff around looking for a dual seat, buy a new one from: http://www.rk-leighton.co.uk/ajs-matchless/

Give Steve a call at AMC Classic Spares to see if he has any of your 'wish list' in his stock of used items http://www.amcclassicspares.com/

Have fun Mick
