This is a machine that is an older restoration. I bought this in 1995 and restored it over a ten year period. The engine and gearbox were fully gone through by Karl Engardiner at Motorcycle Machining in Sacramento. An exceptional engineer. This was a no expense spared restoration in order to make an exceptional riding machine. It's fitted with a Boyer ignition and an anti wet sump valve. The front brake master cylinder has been modified by Phil Radford. an acknowledged Norton expert in the SF bay area.  to give it more stopping power.  I have almost all receipts for work that was done. I dare not add them up ! Mileage when bought was 5505 so it has travelled a little over 1000 miles since the rebuild. It's now broken in and runs like a scalded cat and handles beautifully. Not a mark on the paintwork. Matching frame and engine numbers. List of defects: There are some fine scratches on the stainless fenders. visible only in certain light. The tires still have plenty of tread with some crazing on sidewalls. The kickstarter needs a new detent ball. spring and nut to take it back to original. A five minute job. It's ready to ride and enjoy. It starts on the first or second kick. I am unable to start it owing to knee damage but a friend has put 30 miles on it this week to ensure there are no surprises.
