 Norton motorcycles are very dependable once you throw the British electrical stuff in the trash. With a Mikuni carburetor conversion, changing of the electrical system to negative ground and an electronic ignition, she has never let me down. Also all O-ring grooves were machined out to accept lip type seals which did away with all of the oil leaks.
 I'm proud to own such a classic. "Betty" has won numerous bike shows including 1st Place in the Easyriders Show in Charlotte, NC January 2009. She has also been raced in the AHDRA Rockingham Finals where she made it to the quarter finals. I broke out in my last round as she kept running faster as the day rolled on.
 I am a firm believer that vintage bikes should be ridden. No trailers for me unless I'm off to the races. I am working on starting a vintage drag racing class within the AHDRA. Any twin cyclinder, push rod configuration engine motorcycle, 35 years or older will qualify as a "Vintage" bike. If you would be interested in running in a Vintage "ET" class, please contact me. My phone & E-mail are on the (Contact) page of this website.

 The Norton name has been revived lately. Kenny Dreer of Oregon, did a ton of work trying to bring the "TRUE" Norton back. He did an excellent job, but in the end, it didn't get off the ground. The Brits bought what was there and moved it back across the pond to Britain. I went by Kenny's facility while living in Oregon and he was a super guy to meet. Not only was he one of the sharpest designers I have ever met, he took time out of his day to weld up my broken header pipe.
 On the flip-side, I have called and e-mailed the new Norton company in England on numerous occasions, without the courtesy of a single reponse. 
Below you will find a wide variety of Norton motorcycles. From Commando's to Manx's, to the classic International of the old days. I hope you enjoy these photos and please send us any photos you may have of the clasic Norton's of yesterday.
More pictures being formatted for placement on this page. Come Back Soon!
