    Bloody quick on a smooth road, raises a few eyebrows.

    I have that article.

    I used to buy "Cycle" religiously back in those days. Lost most during a move/cleanout. That was one copy that i searched for to have again.

    TC was at the Barber Vintage Fest last year, camping at "Norton Hill" with the INOA crowd. If I'd been smart, I should have brought my copy and gotten an autograph.

    you are correct norton73, my dad subscribed to Cycle from the early 70's until the mid-80's.
    My brothers & I used to fight over the issues, this was one of my favorites

    When I was a kid, TC was the Norton king. It reminds me of a little of Rossi in MotoGP now. I had the privilege of drinking beer and just talking about bikes at Nortona many years ago.

    That looks really nice, but then I see those very low bars, low seat and stock footrest location.
    Once around the block, and back in the garage.
