Real Classic - - 1940 Matchless Model X -

I thought you might be in­ter­ested in a V-twin I con­verted in the 1960s.

The mid­dle part is a Match­less side­valve; all the rest came from a Pan­ther 600. The work was done only with hand tools (in­clud­ing a hack­saw!).

It worked fine once I got the pri­mary chain line sorted out. It was hand-painted with one un­der­coat and four top coats of Belco Black, then ev­ery­thing pol­ished up with Brasso.

It took me, my wife, her mother and two kids for a good few hol­i­days.
