RARE MATCHLESS ROTAX 1988 MATCHLESS G80
This listing is for a 1988 Matchless “Les Harris” G80. The motorcycle is a rare machine in that it was built between the years 1987 and 1990…..with approximate production of 850 units. This particular motorcycle is even more scarce as it has less than 20 original miles! These motorcycles were a “rebirth” of the Matchless marque…powered by a 500cc “bulletproof” Austrian Rotax engine….very well engineered and very reliable! A substantial number of European products were used in the design and build of the bike such as: Paioli suspension, Dellorto carb, Lafranconi silencers and Brembo brakes. The motorcycle, although well styled, outfitted and well built, did not meet sales targets and production ceased in 1990. There has since been a good deal of interest in the bike from enthusiasts and collectors.
