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.

The Quantel Norton Cosworth at the BOTT race in Daytona '80 or '81.Roger Marshall up, I think this is the year they won the race.
In this form the bike had no frame, much like the Ducati Panigale. The steering head attached to an aluminum structure that bolted to the head. The swingarm pivoted on plates from the rear of the motor/trans package.The monoshock attached to the rear of the head . That was about it.

One of the hot mods that the desert guys used to do was to lenghthen the rear swing arm by and inch. when my dad rode the prototype that was the only change that they sugested but it didn't make it into the production bike.
