    Is tha
    Is that an Aussie lnumber plate. It was smart of someone to have added a "modern" front brake, in the past.
    I really like that example of a very nice motorcycle model.

    As a member of the So Cal Norton Owners Club I thought I would pass this along:

    Southern California Norton Owners Club
    November 5 – 38th Annual Hansen Dam Ride & Show

    Join the Southern California Norton Owners Club's for their biggest event of the year, the 38th Annual Hansen Dam Ride & Show! Get that classic Brit bike ready for show or for the road and join us for a day of fun. Here's a chance to chat with fellow riders, kick tires, and be part of the largest gathering of British motorcycle enthusiasts in the West. Several hundred vintage and rare bikes will be on hand.

    There will be a Peoples' Choice judged bike competition this year, complete with trophies for Best Norton, Best Triumph, and so on.

    We meet at the lower lot. Enter on Dronfield Avenue off of Osbourne Street. Festivities start at 7:30 am so be there early to get a good spot for your bike. There will be T-shirts, patches, coffee, donuts, and burgers for sale to support the club. The SCNOC Hansen Dam T-shirts have become prized possessions for those who own them from previous years. The ones this year are once again awesome.

    The exciting highlight of the day will be the annual ride up into the scenic San Gabriel mountains and Angeles Crest leaving from the parking lot at 10 am sharp and returning to Hansen Dam in the early afternoon for the show. Ride maps will be distributed at the meet and will take into account any road closures. Riders on British iron will get free pins at the end of the ride.

    Southern California Norton Owners Club. Ride hard.

    When you say the bottom 850, do you mean the Interstate? That bike was taken out of the crate by Brian Slark at Barber! 100% original. Blame your sloppy countrymen!

    No idea uf that's an Aussie plate. The bike came from England in the early '90s.
    This bike has an interesting history. When I get to a pc I will post a little more about it.

    Resized_20170525_204028.jpg Sad to see this project come to an end. Now it's winter time and I need another project. Freash motor, forks, charging system, boyer, tach,oil pump, brakes, mukuni, wheels, one kick bike. What an easy bike to work on. I enjoyed working on it as much as riding it.

    I've been thinking about adding a dunstall fairing on my 750. Looks like fairing, brackets , headlight assy. And paint. Am I missing something?

    Clip-ons. Add to that the slippery slope of Dunstall rearsets, Dunstall tank & seat, Dunstall front fender, Dunstall Decibel silencers, & possibly a new set of Girlings for the rear suspension.
