    Thank you.

    Piero,
    Your best way forward is to download the parts manuals and determine what the differences are.
    I have done this with my two G15's (CS and CSR) but I do not have an encyclopedic memory of all the differences.

    Hi.
    thank to Knut, i know now that my bike is a 1964/65 G15 MK2.
    I can see and know that the main diferences are the large deeply and valenced/ribbed chromed front and rear fender, dampers with internal springs, the large AMC mufflers that you said, the large four gallon thank with cast badges and large knee knockers.
    About tank Knut let me know that was all in black with a coach line and pinstripe in a zigzag flash.
    I must repaint the tank but i have never seen pinstripes and zig zag line.
    Someone could post a picture?
    Thank you.
    Piero

    Details of the paint pattern (colours, zig-zag lines) are available from the AJS/M Owners Club. I suggest you become a member. I am not sure if I am allowed to pass on proprietary club information.
    As for a picture of the paint pattern, some petrol tanks were chromed, some were all painted. I believe early Mk2's were all painted, while 1965-67 export models were chromed and partly painted (no zig-zag pattern).

    See Rob Swift's model 31CSR in this book:
    https://books.google.com/books?id=U...AQ#v=onepage&q=Matchless 1964 zig-zag&f=false

    or the G15Mk2 at the National Motorcycle Museum:

    or this restored 1964 G12CSR:

    I suggest you have a chat with fellow countryman Mauritzio and query the pinstriping details from him.

    Cheers,
    Knut
