Here is my latest project. I have had this , in a lot rougher condition than the photo, for about
40 years . I gave another finished Matchless a 1966 to my son in Colorado,
so forces me to pull out my 1958 that will  look like the finished bike in the photo.
It is a 650 cc twin which is the first year for a 650 in the Matchless line up.
So here it is when it gets finished.........try to get it done 2017.....sometime. L@.

Sweet! A true classic twin. I have a few project bikes on the back burner yet.

This was my first British bike. Then many more came and went as the years went by. Did a lot of riding on a whole
variety of motorcycles, and sailed and built cars and couple of trucks.
Haven't got a clue why I never got this 1st one up and running, just too many projects ,cars .trucks ,work life
that kind of stuff.
Now in my" golden time" this is my last bike , probably won't ride it , just love those old machines.
