Introduction

Post by Eamonn »

One of the basic models that AMC started after the WW2, The Model 18 and G80 are the direct descendants of the War Office Matchless which so many learned to ride in their Service days.

As time went on, improvements and model expansion also increased.

Following on from my post for Jampots as being a weakspot (some different views here). Perhaps the intro should include Jampots as part of the intro?

As have stated Frank Westworth former Jampot editor's magazine Classic Bike Guide did feature what its title suggests for many marques. Just price guides will now be out of date. I believe not so long ago club archivists went through all the modern magazines coping out all AMC items featured. Of course the old original magazines also featured " buyers guides " So all the info is out there, from when the bikes were new, then re done in the late 80's early 90's by FW.

Looks like a good resource to pull from. I know the other bike club I am a member of has a similar listing for all the various 60's, 70's and later mopeds, they are just not in a printer friendly format. :headbang:
