1948 Matchless G80C Pictures

Add Your Photos!

This gorgeous bike lives in Canada and has raced in the Jack Pine enduro and Detroit speed way for a number of years. Unfortunately somebody topped it up with the wrong oil which didn’t mix with the Castrol R they were using. The engine was irretrievably damaged by this and was rebuilt using a short stroke crank and rod. It was then running quite well and was sold to be used in Vintage ice racing (you don’t get much that of that in Wiltshire!).  Many thanks to Jim Lynch for submitting this picture.
