    Literature Needed Please

    I am looking for anyone who can help me with some photocopies of what my 1931 Harley V would have looked like when new. I prefer factory ads or marketing pieces if possible.

    I need this in case the techs at Maxton question anything about running my bike in the vintage Production class.

    Thanks.

    Here is your problem as I see it.
    You have a 1931 motorcycle. But your motorcycle doesn't look like a 1931 as it has the 1934 and later sheetmetal on it. So The tech inspection guys will look at the photos and say your bike doesn't look like that. And if you show a photo of a '34-'36 they will say that is a '34, yours is a '31. You have other parts that are not 1931 issure on it too.
    Does this make any sence?

    It makes perfect sense. So I am guessing it is in my best interest to show up with photocopies of photos of a 1931 AND 1934 V model and pull out whatever works best at the time.

    Can you help me on this?
