Stock Stories: 1949 Matchless G9 and AJS Model 20

By the 1940s and '50s, parallel twin motors were by no means new technology. In fact, the first motorcycle to run this configuration was a Hildebrand & Wolfmuller motorcycle way back in 1894; it was driven by steam and is regarded as the world's first series production motorcycle.

My Father who was a young man in Belgium during and after the 2nd WW , said he rode a FINE Matchless for a few years.. somewhere this house is a photo of him standing proudly with this machine. Thanx for the read.
