Rickman's Metisse G50 Matchless was equipped with a five-speed Schaffleitner gearbox modification. A period test at Silverstone achieved a top speed of 129mph (208kph. This example has a drum brake with large cooling discs - by 1966 the machines were fitted with a disc brake, the first production machine to do so.
