1962 Matchless G15/45

Here is a 62 G15/45 750 cc Matchless engined twin. One of a total of only 212 made between 1962 and 1963. The displacement actually measures 738cc achieved by boring out the G12 to 77mm. Blue, as in this example, and red were the two options each with white/cream fenders. Ugly to some but a real beauty to others. They had an undeserved reputation for blowing to bits. About 30 odd examples are known to exist (more are coming out of the wood work all the time) each with reasonably high mileage ie. they weren't too bad after all.
