    Does any one have a picture of a 1950 Norton Model 40 International ? I'd sure like to see one, I've had no luck on the net. Thanks...

    here is a 1950 model 30M, there are very few minor differences between a 30M and a 40M, apart from the engine size 350cc &500cc, if you want to know the differences I could probably tell you, and if I dig in my pictures I may even have a picture of a 40M...

    Thanks, those are the race bikes. I can find those. I'd like to see the street going version.

    In that case stop looking for Norton 40M and start looking for Norton International...
