About this title


Matchless was one of the true pioneer motorcycle manufacturers. Their first machine was manufactured in London in 1899, and the company really came to prominence in 1907 with victory in the single-cylinder class of the first Isle of Man TT. Over the next seventy years, Matchless produced many distinguished bikes, from singles to magnificent four-cylinder machines. In 1931 Matchless acquired the ailing AJS concern, and the two companies were merged to form AMC - Associated Motorcycles. From then on Matchless and AJS machines became increasingly similar, and for a long time the machines of each mark were practically identical. Mick Walker's history of this famous marque takes in every machine and also looks at the competition fortunes of the company. Well illustrated with archive photographs, this book is a worthy tribute to this famous London manufacturer.
