1959 Matchless AFS

Recommended Posts


i am coming up with lots of old info on the history of the AFS matchless collection ....

but drawing a complete blank as to the location of my machine  Matchless G3   WXR 565 

i believe it was in the ruddington 107 sale brochure  sept 70

but not had that confirmed . ive got the origional log book from first civilian ownership but nothing relating to its AFS history.

i know that WXR 563 was in service in Canterbury .

any help in gaining any previous history would be greatly appreciated .
