Has anyone got any literature, information, photos, manuals etc for the 1931 G31  OHV that I have just purchased?
Grateful for any replies.

The only thing that I have ever seen for the F/G31 and F/G32 models is some catalog specs and illustrations for each year. Also one slightly misleading press photo that like the catalog illustrations shows lighting but no way to recharge the accumulator! No manual or spares list has yet come to light for the 1931-32 and 1934-35 OHV sporting road models.

They are pretty rare and looking at frame numbers in the LDMCC registry it appears that made about one hundred. The factory never seemed to have gotten around to producing any supporting literature for it.

Thanks Doug,
My bike has come back to the UK from Finland.
It was owned by Alex Duran.
Have you anything information that you could send me?
The bike starts easily and runs very well however the kickstart mechanism needs to be replaced, I have only push started it so far!
It needs a few problems to be sorted out but I am sure that it will be a good bike to ride.
All the best,
Graham
