Lot Details
1956 Matchless 593cc Model G11
Registration no. XKM 835
Frame no. A46695
Engine no. 01940
Associated Motor Cycles' first stretch of its 500cc parallel twin took it out to 550cc in 1954, but this US-only variant would prove relatively short-lived and was swiftly superseded by an even bigger version. Introduced for 1956, the Matchless G11 and equivalent AJS Model 30 boasted an engine of 593cc, which went into the newly introduced cycle parts shared with the heavyweight singles range. Along with the new frame came a restyled oil tank and toolbox, full-width front brake and longer seat, while the excellent AMC gearbox - also fitted to Nortons including the Manx - was phased in during the year. Acquired by the vendor in March 2010 and described by him as in generally good condition, with very good frame/cycle parts, this G11 is offered with a quantity of old MoT certificates (most recent expired February 2012), old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents, instruction book and a copy of 'Jampot'. It should be noted that there is an anti-drain valve in the oil line.
