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.

John Iball’s run to Clapham

(Adventures of The Soggy Seven)
Seven members met at CRFC on a very wet morning. John said that the weather would clear up soon and we set off with promises of sun and swaying palm trees. In fact he was so sure that he didn’t put any overtrousers on. I soon found that my overtrousers were very good…….at keeping the water in!

2018 Jampot Rally

Rose and I set off 4 days early and arrived at a caravan site about 30 miles north of the rally where we met Albert and Dianne from the Cheshire section. We towed the caravan with my van with the Ajay inside. It is a lovely campsite in the wood which is run by the forestry commission, so lots of walks and cycle trails. We visited Stamford where ‘Middlemarch’ was filmed – lovely town.
