I have a '61 Matchless G3L. I have been told its from Norway but I was wondering if anyone knew more about the bike and weather it is possible to get a service history for the bike.


It has 'Cevuld Met' on one side panel and wondered if anyone knows what it means.


Pictures etc are here,







Thanks, Jack Stringer

"Gevuld met" is Dutch - "Filled with" - What have they painted out ? It can't be 'anti-freeze', can it ? Presumably oil type.


I believe that the Netherlands forces did use the G3LS.


It may be worth a post on the WM20 forum as it is Dutch based and there are a few natives there who may know more

Well I have since got the dating records back for the bike and it was sold to the Dutch Army.


"Gevuld met" is Dutch = "Filled with" would mean Fill with Oil. As the filler cap is for the Oil. It might of stated the thickness of oil. I will have to look it up. Strange its written in such large letters.


I still have more to research.
