Matchless 1940 G3 350 cc 1 cyl ohv



Matchless  ca. 1940  type G3     347 cc  OHV  frame #  F 59026

In 1936 the G3 (350) and G80 (500) models were brought out, sharing the same cycle parts and many engine parts. 
The G3 with bore and stroke dimensions of 69×93 mm produces 16 BHP @ 5200 rpm and can be considered as a sturdy and sporty machine. 
Soon the range was broadened with “clubman” specifications – mainly for use in reliability trials and scrambles – the G3C “ Clubman Special” and the G4 “Super Clubman”.  
The latter  had a pepped up engine, high exhaust pipe and shallow section chromium plated mudguards. 
This G3 model comes complete with tank top instrument panel, speedometer, bum pad and pannier bag. It’s a well kept older restoration and a good runner.
