Up for sale 1974 (collectible year) all original Norton with less than 2,900 original miles. Insured appraised value $25k. The bike was purchased from the original owner after it won first place for best restored motorcycle at the 2007 Detroit Autorama in it's first showing. The first owner bought the bike new in 1978 (all documented), took it home with 8.5 factory test miles on it and parked it in his collection but never registered it or rode it. In 2006, he decided to ride it for the first time. He fully restored it using aluminum tank and side covers fabricated by the master Evan Wilcox and fitting a Corbin seat. The front brake was updated and Boyer ignition replaced the points. Any perished parts were replaced with OEM Norton parts when possible. MK III isolastics were installed and stainless fasteners were used in critical areas. Within few months he became ill and passed away never having ridden it. The bike was registered for the first time for road use in California in 2007. A Norton factory trained mechanic went thru the bike for a second time and made some changes that he recommended. He changed out the counter sprocket for a 19 verse the original 20, put in a Barnett clutch, heim head steady, Fiamm horns, roadster style headlight, new exhaust pipes and mufflers, and a covenant fork upgrade. All the original parts: bronze clutch plates, high rider headlight, turn signals, choke and cables, head steady, air box, horn, cross over pipes, mufflers,and roadster seat have never been used and will come with the bike as well as the owners manual, tool kit, spark plugs, square mirrors, extra Boyer ready to go and electric air pump. Most parts to bring back to factory set up are here. It still has the break in instruction sticker on the speedo. I have included pictures of how it looked when purchased and photos of how it is set up currently. The bike has always been stored inside and has never even had water used to clean it. It has never been in the rain either. I wipe it down and polish it. Show it, ride it, or both. I chose to ride it on a limited basis and the rest of the time I just like to sit and stare at it. All documentation, original bill of sale from 1978 dealer purchase, verification of history, all work orders and parts lists from both top notch mechanics will come with the bike. Service records totaling well over $30k. Interested party is welcome to review documents prior to purchase. Bike is all original and all matching numbers. As a second owner, I registered this bike in Ohio, the bike received new clutch line, battery, and new matching tires. It also has a valid 1974 original historical plate. The bike went to few vintage shows turning heads. This bike was last seen at the SO CA NORTON HANSEN RIDE and will remain in southern California. Welcome to check it out in person, the motorbike is fully functional. Can be a daily rider but I chose to preserve it and use it as a special show motorbike.
