Welcome to this site!! If you live in the North West of England and have an interest in classic motorcycles but especially those of the AJS and Matchless (or any AMC marque) then you have come to the right place.

We are a group of enthusiasts that either own, have owned, would like to own or just have an interest in classic AJS & Matchless motorcycles. The parent company of these machines Associated Motor Cycles Ltd (AMC) collapsed in 1966, so these machines are mostly 50 years old or more.

We believe in keeping these examples of the British automotive history as part of an active road going experience for not only ourselves, but as an experience that can be shared with everyone. In order to promote this and enjoy our machines by using them as they were meant to be used we have a programme of events which we stage and/or attend each year.

There is also a social side to the sections activities with monthly meetings and regular runs out through the year.



Charnock Richard Football Club

55 Charter Lane PR7 5LZ 

Charnock Richard

On the first THURSDAY of the month starting at 8.00pm.

We are always happy to welcome anyone who has an interest in the AJS & Matchless machines so please feel free to come along to one of our meetings. A typical meeting will provide time for general chat, problem solving discussions, sales, part wants and event planning.
