Matchless motorcycle, taken at the 2012 Driffield Steam & Vintage Rally, East Yorkshire.

Matchless is one of the oldest marques of British motorcycles, manufactured in Plumstead, London, between 1899 and 1966. A wide range of models were produced under the Matchless name, ranging from small two-strokes to 750 cc four-stroke twins. Matchless had a long history of racing success; a Matchless ridden by Charlie Collier won the first single-cylinder race in the first Isle of Man TT in 1907.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Princess of Wales'.

Best wishes,
Philip

Nice one Phillip.

High contrast and a good angle of capture, Philip. Not one I've come across before.

B&W is appropriate - and this is a lovely conversion, hard and brittle-looking.

Great Image. This takes me back to my childhood, 3 brothers and a dad who all rode Nortons, and my father also started on a Matchless Wink
My brother also raced in the Isle of Man, Manx Prix
