Matchless

This famous company was founded in 1899 by H H Collier and had its works at Woolwich in London. The first TT race in 1907 was won by Collier's son Charles on a 432cc Matchless, the first of many triumphs in the Isle of Man. After the First World War race machines were based on production models but were still successful. In 1931 Matchless merged with AJS and gradually the two marques lost their separate identities. Matchless went into decline in the 1950s.
