Lot 1855

Description:

1960 Norton 650cc

Frame no. R13-88487
Engine no. 104741
Norton, from winning the first TT on the Isle of Man in 1907, dominated road racing for many years with its big single OHC engines. When Hopwood and Craig joined Norton in 1946 they set about designing their first parallel twin OHV engine. It went on sale in 1949 as a 500cc, followed by the 600cc and 650cc versions. The bike in the auction is a 650cc that is in need of total restoration. All the tin-ware is there and in sound condition. It is in the earlier wideline featherbed frame and the bike is offered with a V5.
