How the machine was when acquired in 1970. My Uncle bought this from Dave Coone, who was the third owner. Originally owned by Clarrie Delaney, Ararat, who owned this 1932 Matchless X/3 for many years. Interestingly, the machine was supplied by Wallis Brothers Motorcycles in Ararat, and many years later Dave Coone's business D+K Coone Motorcycles operatated from the same building and supplied my uncle with his new Triumph T140V Bonneville in 1976. He still owns that machine, and still on original rego.
