The Matchless G50 is a well-known British racing motorcycle made by AMC at the former Matchless works in Plumstead, London.
Developed in 1958 from the 350 cc AJS 7R, but with the engine capacity increased to 500 cc,  180 G50s were built in the next four years.
Although less powerful than its main competitor the Norton Manx, the G50 proved highly competitive and was able to corner much faster.
If success is measured by longevity then this is the most successful Matchless motorcycle.
Unfortunately financial problems at AMC ended production in 1963.
This Seeley G50 includes a famous Seeley racing frame (made by sidecar Grand Prix racer Colin Seeley) and the before mentioned G50 Matchless racing engine .
This G50 Seeley has always been raced in the English C.M.R.C. and competed also in the Manx GP at the Isle of Man.

This Seeley G50 is a very well and fast running racing motorcycle and has a 5-speed gearbox.
The engine number is 1888 and the gearbox carries number MH00285.
This Seeley G50 is ready for the race track.
