    Default Three Sub-Forums added to British motorcycle Forum

    Hi Folks -

    At the request of Member Dave Janecek (AKA ArubaFirst) we added three new manufacturer specific sub-forums, including: Ariel, Royal Enfield and Velocette to the British forum. Let us know if other revisions and additions can make the AMCA Forum more useful.

    Hi, there are hundreds of British marques but only a few that sold in significant volume and you have covered most of those already. Any other marques probable don’t have the numbers to warrant a specific forum.

    The only other comment that I have is that I see that there is a Matchless section however Matchless were part of Associated Motor Cycles or AMC as they are more commonly known. AMC made both Matchless and AJS motorcycles and the two marques were almost identical except for the name (at least they were post WWII, I am not so sure about pre WWII). For example my Matchless G3 is virtually the same motorcycle as an AJS Model 16. So my comment is that the Matchless forum could be renamed Matchless and AJS if you wanted to add that marque without adding another forum. If you want to see what I mean about the bikes being virtually the same then the AMC owners club have a website (jampot.com) with lots of info.

    How about an Other or All Others sub category to cover the multitude of lesser known British bikes.

    HaHa - I wrote that several times in different places today including my post to the "British Forum" but didn't misspell until the heading. Go figure.
