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.
