Norton ES2
This machine was modified by A Freeman Sanders of Newlyn, Cornwall at some time during the mid part of the last century. The engine produced 18.5hp at 4500rpm and was reportedly capable of speeds up to 70 mph. Fuel consumption was said to be in the region of 140mpg. The pictures below were from the September 1992 edition of The Classic Motorcycle.
This 490cc machine was featured in the Practical Motorist and Motor cyclist magazine November 1954 and in The Motor cycle's September edition of the same year. This motorcycles engine was unusual in that only the cylinder head and barrel were apparently modified. Given that the compression ratio was a reported 11.8:1, one assumes that the bottom end was easily able to cope with the marginally different combustion.
A nice close up shot of the barrel and pump set up.Mr Freeman Sanders went on to design engines for Lister, a company well known for their general purpose engines.
