The Norton thread!

Can't see a specific Norton thread.So If you like bikes that mark their territory and vibrate across the garage floor-lets see them

This is my MKIII at home in Medellin Colombia

Now with the boss woman!

I have my MK2 since -94, bought it used from Chicago, shipped it to Paris and here in San Francisco since 2000. Went through some transformation: mk3 rear wheel with R1 rear caliper, front Luchier brake, belt drive, hydraulic clutch...Till -09 when it was destroyed in a collision with a 1198. Here it is now (before the Alton electric starter, just installed).

Heres a picture of my mate in the 80's on his 850



Same bike as it looks now




Thats me at the back 26 years ago with another friends 750 Commando. He bought that when he was 17 for 400, he's still got the bike and despite being crashed, catching fire and being mercilessly thrashed for years and covering well over 100,000 miles is still going strong with the original engine. - No luxury of garages in those days.

I've been riding the Commando since 1977 and it's the "therapy" ride.

Police in the LI town of Port Washington, NY used to ride those as patrol bikes in the '60s. There was a dealer in town, Ghost Motorcycles, which sold them.

For some reason I am way drawn to the industrial- utilitarian look of the gray colors....

The Atlas was the 750cc version, but looks near identical to the 650SS and the last of the 650s, the Mercury, all of which were the linear descendants of the 500/600cc Dominator series.

'68 Atlas:



1959 Dominator 88 500:



'63 Dominator 99/650SS:



'69 Mercury: (original factory colours, btw.)

The 99 was a 600,a 600SS is pretty rare. That one has a Commando front brake and a single carb too.

In this photo around 1980, the first red Norton is my 99, SS'd with cam, pistons and twin carbs, and also a Commando front brake. The 2nd Norton with the fairing is a Mercury. The rigid Triumph is my wife's T100....she called it that, but only the crankcase was. Built from parts by herself. The blue '54 T100 is owned by my life's mentor.

Yes, just used a pic of a 99 to show the generic Norton style of the 60's models. I didn't put a pic in of a 650SS as there's not a great deal of visual difference bar the carbs.



Then there are the Atlas engined Matchless G15s - looks like a Laverda 750 brake on this CSR.
