Who are we?
The offical club name is the "NZ AJS & Matchless Owners Register Inc" and is part of a world wide group of AJS & Matchless enthusiasts that are dedicated to the preservation and use of AJS and Matchless motorcycles. In New Zealand, we have a strong Register of around 200 members. Originating in Palmerston North, there are now branches or sections all over the country. The Register promotes the riding and preservation of AMC motorcycles of any age and has links to the UK, North American and Australian owners clubs, groups or registers.
Once a year the New Zealand Register holds a rally and AGM - The NZ Jampot Rally - (usually) in early March. There's a newsletter every two months for members, with regular contributors from overseas. If you are travelling across the Cook Strait, then as a member, you can enjoy discounted travel on the InterIslander ferry.
New members are always welcome, whether you are currently restoring, riding, or just have an interest in the marque. We are a diverse and friendly bunch brought together through a love of AJS & Matchless motorcycles and the desire to help one another and have some fun.
