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.

Mick Walker’s history of the important British manufacturer takes us from the end of the nineteenth century to the last AMC Matchless of 1966 and beyond.
