1963 Matchless G12CS
1963 MATCHLESS G12CS - A BRIEF HISTORY
In 1963 there were four models offered of the G12. There was the Standard, De Lux, the CS (Competition Sport) and the CSR (Competition Sport, Road). They all were 646cc vertical twins with the 4-speed AMC gear box, Lucas magneto ignition. The CS and CSR came with alloy fenders, siamezed exhaust, and quick detachable headlight. The CS had a small 2-gallon competition fuel tank, skid plate and western style handlebars. An option offered for these bikes was a speed kit that consisted of 10.5/1 compression pistons, hotter camshaft and duel carburetors. These additions proved to over stress an already fragile crankshaft. The AJS version was the 31 and they came in AJS Mediterranean Blue.

A WORK IN PROGRESS
In our efforts to complete our online index, and make this the world's greatest website about classic British motorcycles, we're building pages as fast as we can. The first thing we add are the pictures. Then come the specifications and then the history. So, if you see a page that just has only pictures on it, or just pictures and specs, please check back in a few weeks to see if we have it done. Thanks for your patience.
