  • A later progression of the Matchless G3/L that was supplied in high volume to active services in World War II
  • Propelled by a single cylinder, air-cooled 350-cc engine
  • Acquired by Mr. Ponder in May 2014; during his ownership a single sprung seat has been fitted, and the fuel tank changed for a chrome finish
  • Black, chrome, and gold details of the fuel tank complete a consistent color theme across the bike
  • A charismatic English cruiser typical of the 1950s, with its right-mounted gear shifter and left-sided rear brake
