Ah the featherbed International Norton.
Probably the most overhyped bike ever!
Scarcity is it's number one and probably only attribute. I mean yes it is pretty of course and admittedly it will handle, but that engine, What were Norton thinking about!! It's at least 15 years by its sell by date at this point and is still sporting exposed valve gear!! A contemporary BSA DBD34 Gold Star or Clubman Velo will blow it into the weeds even with there dinosaur OHV motors. That said I wouldn't say no to one as long as you're buyin!!
Gorgeous shape of tank.
