Heroes Motorcycles: Serge Bueno’s Homage to History

The 1956 Matchless G45 500cc single racer pumps out 50 hp, is capable of 135 mph. At 300 lbs, it was a formidable competitor against the vaunted Norton Manx. This example was literally a “barn find,” lying in disarray for 20 years before being revived under Serge’s care. It was originally raced by B.P. Castellani, the seven-time South African roadracing champion.
