Lot 291: 1931 Matchless 592cc Silver Hawk

Sale of Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams & Butterfields (12 November 2005)

Reviewing the new v-four Silver Hawk at the time of its launch in the autumn of 1930, Motor Cycling magazine stated that this exciting overhead-camshaft model was “designed primarily to give really high speed, and to give this speed with silence and the added safety of a spring frame.”

This dismantled and incomplete Silver Hawk v-four is sold strictly as viewed. This machine is offered with a Certificate of Title.
