The book covers all post-war road singles and twins.

Matchless and AJS Restoration is written by Roy Bacon and was published in 1993.

The book is has a card cover.

This book is a respected guide to the restoration and renovation of AJS and Matchless motorcycles and tells the development history of all post war Matchless and AJS production motorcycles. The book contains many photographs and illustrations as well as a wealth of technical information and data.

"Restorations can range from a mild check-over to a concours-standard rebuild, furthermore adding features and a finish never seen on a production machine. Alterations may be carried out ranging from discreet rider improvements to major changes in updating the specification.

In all cases, and regardless of the final aim, it is hoped that this book will assist and guide the reader to produce the machine of his or her dreams."
