Seller's Note

Norton 16H W.D.

Everyone says "reluctant sale" but this truly is. I have owned this bike for 8 years, and it is a joy to ride. Everything on this bike is how it should be. I have a dating letter from the Norton Owners Club, confirming it left the fatory in 1943, right in the middle of WW2. It is now obviously in civilian colours. It is not a recent restoration, just in absolutely great condition, and running sweetly. Some things have to be replaced on machines of this age, everything on this bike that needed to be replaced has been, with parts that are correct, not cobbled together to make do. I am a true enthusiast and have maintained this beautiful machine well. The genuine Norton Girder forks were rebuilt by Jake Robbins and work perfectly, without any wear or play. http://www.jake-robbins-vintage-engineering.co.uk/ The gearbox and the engine are in fine fettle. All the tinware is correct and fits. Correct WD speedo. All replaced fixing are in stainless, other than stressed components such as wheel spindles etc. as stainless is too brittle for these parts. I do not intend to list every single component, suffice to say, it's well sorted, cleaner than "oily rag" but not an over polished ornament. I do ride it, when the Sun shines, and that's why I know it's a beauty. I have an expensive hobby, and a new baby forces sale. Cash sale, on collection only. Any requests for a buy it now price will be ignored. any questions will be answered, other than that one.
