The first Matchless motorcycle was made in 1899 and, with a commercial manufacturing history dating from 1901, Matchless is one of the senior marques of the late British motorcycle industry.
Matchless produced a wide range of motorcycles to suit all purposes and pockets; their most famous machines being the Silver Arrow and Silver Hawk multi-cylinder bikes of the 1930s. Their wartime G3L was not only one of the most popular British service machines of the Second World War, but the first to feature telescopic front forks.
The G3L has a higher compression engine giving a modest power gain to 18 HP, sufficient to propel the bike up to a quoted top speed of 100 km/h. It’s still no road burner, but very delightful to ride.
