[QUOTE=swooshdave;20772174]

Just stumbled onto this thread. About 3 weeks ago, I started working part time with TC at his shop. I've known him very casually for a few years but, I am just now learning the history of the Hogslayer. He still has the tri engined Norton in the shop so, it is cool to go into work and see it on a regular basis. He is hoping to restore it and take it to tracks all over the world to do exhibition runs on it.

Anyways, great thread.

Kev, man that's an interesting combination there- rear sets and high rise bars.
Seriously? WTF.
Other than that, I like it.

I picked this 74 up last week. Owned many bikes but never a Norton. I am looking forward to getting her back on the road.

Back on the road? Hope you don't do much more than tires, battery, and spark plugs. Looks like a rider to my eyes!
Best of luck with it tho.

She looks to be complete but things like the the fuel lines and the petcocks need to be replaced. The handles for the petcocks broke off in my hand when I tried moving them. The battery needs to be replaced too. But all in all she looks OK with 14.5K miles om her.
