Matchless is the oldest British brand of motorcycles, clothing and accessories with the first product manufactured at the end of the 19th century. It was founded by Henry Herbert Collier in Plumstead (London) in 1878, to make bicycles.
A Matchless motorcycle won the inaugural TT in 1907 and again in 1909. Matchless was the first motorcycle manufacturer to work on rider safety, creating a department of study where clothing was designed to protect the riders. Matchless advertising in the '60s shows for the first time the link between motorcycle and elegance. Leading riders of all disciplines chose Matchlesswear for the perfect mix of safety, performance and elegance.
