Matchless G3; 1964; Black; original engine, frame and registration numbers; original green Card Log Book; cosmetically very presentable and mechanically excellent having had a fair bit of recent expenditure including Alpha Big End etc; recent new rims and spokes; lovely example and really useable being the quite rare later model with the very willing short stroke engine, Road Holder Forks with Norton Brakes so it goes, stops and handles well
