Lot 1873

Description:

1951 NORTON 500T 500cc
Reg. no. PHA169
Frame no. 35082
Engine no. 35082
The 500T was developed in the late 1940s by Rex McCandles and Artie Bell. They used an ex.war time 16H rolling chassis and squeezed in the 500cc OHV motor. The wheel base was altered by changing the angle of the head stock and fitting telescopic forks. The bikes were then used by the works trials team, then in late 1948 the bikes were put on sale for the public, with a newly developed alloy cylinder barrel and head. The bike in the auction has been owned by the same family for over 40 years. It was restored in 2008, and has had very little use since. It is now sold with a V5, a selection of receipts and an older logbook.
