You might be the only member that admits to riding a Matchless, but I have an Ariel HS 500- actually, I have 5 of them. 4 are baskets and the 5th I race in AHRMA vintage mx. I've stuffed the engine into a Cheney frame. I've owned the original bike ever since a girlfriend found it next to a barn in 1975. I've been racing it since 1995. It's good to see other vintage people on TT. I don't have any pics, but if you go to http://www.ahrma.org/northwest/ and punch the images button, you can find some pics of it in action in various races this year. Just look for my name.
