Henry Herbert Collier founded the legendary Matchless namesake in 1899 when he created one of the most important motorcycles of all time. The success of the Matchless motorcycles rocketed when Charles Collier (Henry's brother) won their first trophy in 1907. Throughout the years, Matchless has remained in the spotlight through the silver screen with some of Hollywood’s finest film stars sporting their iconic jackets including Marlon Brando and James Dean. But this year, Matchless makes a revolutionary return to the big screen in some of the most anticipated movies of the summer...
