When WW2 came to an end, men naturally enough returned to their old leisure pursuits. So it was with many sporting motorcyclists who retrenched to (then highly popular) trials riding, and frequently astride the 350cc Matchless G3.
Matchless competition singles were (re)introduced by the Plumstead, South East London factory in 1946. Matchless bike had acquitted themselves well before the war, and even during the war, and they had earned the reputation they deserved; that of a hard-nosed slogging and reliable motorcycle.
The 350cc G3C was derived from the wartime iron and aluminium alloy 347cc, 69mm x 93mm Matchless G3/L ("the despatch rider's favourite").
The G3C was a purely competition-oriented bike and featured a 348cc engine with a bore of 74mm and a stroke of 81mm. The engine was all aluminium. The frame was lightweight. The front wheel was 21-inches. The weight and balance was excellent for most adherents.
In its day, this machine was more often a winner than a loser. It was campaigned by guys such as Artie Ratcliffe and Ted Usher for Matchless), and Hugh Viney and Gordon Jackson for the AJS version (and no, not that Gordon Jackson of acting fame).
Today, you'll be hard pressed to find not only a decent one, but any one. They're rare and in demand, and they'll put a smile on the face of most riders.
The size of this Matchless G3C sign is a generous 300mm x 410mm, which is roughly the size of two A4 sheets of paper. The image is 1400 dpi, which is way better than most, if not all, of the lesser quality stuff on the market (and there's plenty of that around). And the edges are rolled to help preserve those delicate finger nails.
Also, these Matchless G3C signs are printed direct to metal in the traditional way.
