The de­cline

Of the Bri­tish

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

This in­ter­est­ing clip­ping was sent to us some time ago and only re­cently sur­faced. It is from the Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald, Satur­day Novem­ber 6th, 1971, back in the days when Satur­day’s her­ald was the place to buy used mo­tor­cy­cles. It cer­tainly makes in­ter­est­ing read­ing, show­ing the Bri­tish in­dus­try slip­ping into obliv­ion as the Ja­panese in­va­sion gath­ers strength. What we want to know is – who bought the two new Match­less mo­tor­cy­cles in 1970, con­sid­er­ing the fac­tory went out of busi­ness some years be­fore?
