  • AMC Norton Matchless/AJS Hybrid motorcycles
    At last a group dedicated exclusively to AJS-Matchless-Norton Hybrids, many have asked about this.  Now here it is.  This is the place to share your Hybrid knowledge and ask your questions about these great bikes.  This group is new to the AJS and Matchless eGroup fold, and as such has a small membership and a relative unpopulated database.  Given time this will change as the group becomes more established and new members are added.  Over the next weeks I plan to add a catalogue of AMC hybrid information into the files section.  If you have anything that will be of interest (AMC Hybrid related) to the membership please upload to our Photos and Files sections.  Spread the word!

  • The Matchless Silver Arrow & Silver Hawk Group
    The Matchless Silver Arrow & Silver Hawk Group is a co-operative amalgam of owners of and interested parties for these Matchless motorcycle models manufactured between 1929 and 1935. The Silver Arrow is a 400cc sidevalve monobloc V-Twin with 18 degs. between the cylinders. Hence our nickname - V@18°club. The Silver Hawk is a 600cc OHC V-Four, effectively two side by side V-Twins in a common monobloc. Both machines utilised a unique cantilever suspension system on the rear which was controlled by means of two springs placed horizontally under the saddle and two friction dampers either side of and below these. Adjustable, linked brakes also featured together with a centre stand for the first time. It is believed that only about 1700 Silver Arrows and 550 Silver Hawks were produced at the London, England Matchless works. Approximately 70 Silver Arrows and 60 Silver Hawks are known to have survived and are included in our register of machines which is constantly being updated as new machines are uncovered. Mutual co-operation is helping owners to complete, restore and ride these technically interesting, advanced for their day, Matchless motorcycles. If you own either of these models you will not be disappointed by joining this group of fellow owners just like you. The picture shows a 1931 Silver Hawk (foreground) and a 1930 Silver Arrow, both recently restored by one of our members.
