    A friend and I were camped next to T.C. and crew a Dick Klamfoth's Honda Hills (renamed Norton Hills) for that years' INOA Rally. No speed rubbed off but some party did!

    Even if it wasn't, it might be the quickest one because Kevin is riding it. :-)

    I've owned several Norts over the years (Still have one!) and I never tire of looking at them. I'm sure I'll own more before it's over, but it's just amazing how resourceful and innovative owners are in the quest to keep these old crocks on the road and track.
