Matchless G3LS 1957
This Matchless G3LS 350 single from 1957 in lovely original condition with original numbers confirmed by the old log book. We have treated her to a full service & road test where everything performed as it should.
Associated Motor Cycles announced its post-war range of AJS and Matchless heavyweight singles in June 1945. Coded Model 16 and G3L respectively, the two 350cc models shared the same 93mm stroke as their 500cc brethren, coupled to a 69mm bore. Housed in a rigid frame with Teledraulic front fork, the ruggedly built overhead-valve engine drove through a four-speed gearbox. Hairpin valve springs were adopted for 1949 and a swinging-arm frame introduced: the latter initially for export only but available in the UK from 1950, machines so-equipped being suffixed ‘S’.
