I would like to ask two questions: If, upon having doubt as to the condition of a set of rings that have been recently installed, and after removing the barrel and finding rings and cylinder in good condition, is it all right to replace the barrel with the same set of rings?

"MATCHLESS” is a word defined by our dictionary as “without equal, or peerless” and it would be very difficult indeed to find a better word to describe the motorcycles of that name. Matchless motorcycles are manufactured by England’s Associated Motor Cycles Ltd., and are sold wherever people can afford these fast, durable, and high-quality machines.

MOST OF THE THUNDER at the town of Thundersley, in England, comes from the small factory where the Greeves motorcycle is manufactured. For the most part, their output is devoted to outright competition machines, with very straight pipes and/or megaphones, and when the factory is doing development testing it must get very thunderous indeed.

ONCE UPON A TIME, Japanese - manufactured goods were mostly bargain-basement copies of pro ducts originating in the technically more sophisticated western countries. However, with the reformation of Japan's industrial complex after the unpleasantness of the forties, there has been a drastic change.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: MATCHLESS G-50 ENGINE
The power plant for the G-50 and G-50 CSR, an excellent example of the fine British art of single-cylinder racing engine design.

GORDON H. JENNINGS
THROUGHOUT the world, it is customary for manufacturers to build single- or twin-cylinder engines to power the machines they sell for general road work, and to go on to more cylinders for their racing motorcycles. Fours, sixes, and even one V-8 has been turned out for Grand Prix racing — but they have almost never been offered to the general public.

GRAND USMC PRIX

SLIM WYCKOFF
KUNIMITSU TAKAHASHI of Tokyo, Japan, riding a patched up factory Honda 4, started dead last and rode as though he had a Japanese demon on his tail to win three out of the four events in the USMC Grand Prix at Daytona, Florida. The little 132 lb, 22 year old factory team rider, who also led going away in the first race of the day until he took a spill and was sidelined, left the 4,000 amazed fans wondering how he managed to lose even one race of the four run during the weekend.

FOR the first time in recent years, the Midwinter Rally and Gold Hunt had good luck, weather-wise. Bright sunshine and mild temperatures brought more riders out than ever for this popular event, held annually at Atsion, New Jersey. Sponsored by MAMDA (Middle Atlantic Motorcycle Dealer’s Association), which seeks to encourage year-round use of motorcycles, the Rally drew over 300 motorcyclists.

What greeted our eyes was in every sense of the word, a mini-bike, or a miniature motorcycle if you please

MAYBE some lucky, sun-tanned enthusiasts in the warmer parts of the country wonder what cyclists in the colder climates do in the winter. Well, in four words, they ride their motorcycles! Just like the snow tire advertisements say, "We go in snow — and we don't need a tow."

How times change. After the war the 125cc and even 250cc class was treated with contempt by most race fans. 1961 saw the 250 Honda four lapping the Isle of Man at almost 100 mph and the 125cc class gave us some of the finest racing seen at the Grands Prix.

To Max Deubel 1961 was the year that he reached the pinnacle of achievement in his field of sport for with the able support of his passenger, Emil Hoerner, he won the Sidecar Racing World Championship. It is as well at this point to realize just how important the passenger is for one false move can end in catastrophe as readers well know that weight distribution on fast corners is all important with a sidecar outfit.

WITH all the current interest in Matchless motorcycles, many questions naturally arise regarding their back ground, development, basic components, maintenance and repair. Two practical guides by England's noted F. W. Neil!, one covering all models from 1933 through 1953, the other devoted to Matchless twins of 1950-1956 vintage, offer a wealth of pertinent information to the student of Matchless engineering technique.
