I have had a 1961 Matchless G80CS for 40 years with ideas of converting it from desert trim to mild cafe trim at some point. For a long time I thought something like a featherbed frame might be just the ticket, but now I'm thinking that the existing scrambler frame might not be so bad if it were repaired and modified with things like Commando forks. What differences were there between the scrambler & roadgoing G80 frames? The existing frame might be heavy but is it otherwise suitable?
