I think I have an opportunity at a model G coming up. What advice as do you have as to what to particularly look for, especially watch out for on the G?

Be sure to ask if it has a creeper gear. I bought a G and at a show a man ask me if it had a creeper and I said I don't know. He showed me where it was and it did in fact have one.

I'm pretty sure ALL G's had a low gear, (if not used was hard to get in low) this was a while ago.

So what should I expect to need to pay to get a '48 G with nearly new rubber all around, solid rims, tool bar, runs good, transmission, brakes and steering seem good. Don't know and can't find out what mechanical restoration might have been done before a fairly recent, really pretty good, paint job.

Gs are easy, at least I did it at 17 and having only one engine rebuild under my belt. Gs do have a tendancy to twist an axle. If you do ever run into that, take it to a pro. It requires heating the housing just so and brake drum to get it all together. If the engine doesn't run strong, I found a ring job really bumps up the hps all 9.5 of them. LOL. Try to get one with a front weight. It helps with steering and prevents wheelies.
