1946 Matchless G3L 350


December Auction.

1946 matchless G3L 350

Basically civilian version of  a wartime dispatch riders bike, this lovely original example machine is said to be fitted with the experimental alloy barrel with a new unused standard cast barrel in the pannier.

Owned by the vendor since 2009 with the V5 showing just 2 former keepers since 1946. 

Sounds superb and starts first kick! Very desirable in this condition.

Described by the vendor as "ready to ride anywhere". 

Exempt M.O.T and free road tax.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Thank you.
