  • 1965 Matchless G15 MKII

    I've been working on this low mileage bike all Winter and about have it to the point of starting it up. Its a fairly original bike with some John Tickle speed parts. Looking forward to riding my first Matchless.

      This should be fun, I had an N15 for many years. There is quite a community of folks into these “hybrid” Norton/Matchless twins. Mike W is a great resource for AMC knowledge and parts: https://www.walridge.com

        You need to ride a big single though for the full Matchless effect, a G80, Typhoon , or the like...

              This is the 2nd Norton primary cover I've seen with this modification. Its to use a duplex primary chain instead of the single row.
