1962 Matchless G50CS Road Test Impression 2-Page Article by Floyd Clymer

Impressions on road test of the Matchless G50CS

photo captions:

1. Even though the G50 is a high performance bike, Clymer found it throttled down and handled well in turning short circles with feet up.

2. Indian factory district managers, Armand P. Gaudreau and Bob Steiner of Milwaukee, Wis., alongside the G50CS.

3. A rider’s eye view of the G50CS

4. The heart of the G50 is the chain driven, overhead camshaft engine.

5. Frank Kunce, formerly Harley-Davidson dealer and competition rider of Loveland, Colo., now spends his winters in Florida. Frank, who was many times Midwest champion, a Pikes Peak champion and one of the best Midwest half-mile, one mile solo and sidecar riders, and dirt road riders of his day, poses on the Matchless. His only lament is that he didn’t have a performing bike like this one in the days of his fantastic record of competition accomplishments. He might well have been called a Joe Leonard, Ed Kretz, or Carroll Resweber of his day.

6. A view of the “cam side” of the G50CS

7. Here is the lucky dealer who placed his order early enough to take delivery of the Daytona display G50. He is Carl Bagford an exclusive Indian Matchless dealer, of Cedarville, Ohio. With him is Frank Kunce.
