Matchless was a British manufacturer of motorcycles. It was founded in 1899 and had its headquarters in Plumstead, London. It was the (or one of the) first British motorcycle producers with an early history (and some great achievements) in racing too.
Its corporate history took a big change of direction when it became a subsidiary of the new Associated Motor Cycles in 1938 (which also absorbed AJS, Francis-Barnett, James, and Norton). AMC unfortunately ran into financial difficulties in 1966 and even though Norton Villiers continued for a few years after that, the Matchless marque was dropped in 1969.
