So I manufacture and build log homes and I have a customer whom I was talking to the other day and like most folks building a home he is a little stretched. He joked around about selling me a truck and I told him no thanks I am more of a motorcycle guy, especially the old ones. Well, he says, I have a couple of those too. One is a 1973 Laverda and the other is either a '68 or '73 Norton. I know...either a '68 or '73?!?... So here is what I am gathering. I think the guy has had these bikes since the 70's and has had them parked in his basement for decades. I could tell when I mentioned motorcycles it was like a light bulb for his memory that he had a couple of those. I love old Triumphs and Nortons are ok in my book but I have never had one. I don't have much interest in the Laverda as I worry about getting it going and keeping it going. Regardless I have been looking at Nortons on craigslist and around a bit and they are priced all over the place. Now this isn't my first rodeo so I realize everything is dependent upon condition. so lets just assume these are complete, with free engines, and minimal rust but they have been in a basement for 30 years. Also no title. He has them but, god knows where. I can address that here in Virginia. But lets talk about what Nortons are actually selling for in restored, running, and less than running conditions.
