Among the most famous pre-war models, there were the Silver Arrow and the Silver Hawk, top motorcycles of the period (respectively two and four cylinders).
Before the World War II, Matchless saw the market opportunity and developed a cyclecar of their own wich called the "Duocar".
In 1931, Matchless acquired AJS, Sunbeam and Norton and established AMC (Associated Motorcycles Companies). Over the same period Matchless started supplying engines to Brough Superior (those engines were made to the specifications of Brough Superior).
