Up for sale in time for the Holidays is a restored Norton Atlas 750. loaded with every imaginable period Dunstall bit. The bike was first imported to Berliner on June 3. 1966 as a "Norton Atlas 750" according to VMCC records. It was restored by a former Norton dealer in the mid-80s as a Dunstall Dominator. with many authentic. period Dunstall parts. The cost to buy and professionally restore a standard/stock-equipped Atlas is at least equal to the buy-it-now price. To duplicate this bike would no doubt be quite a bit more. assuming you had the time and could even find all the Dunstall items presented here. And if you don't like the Dunstall cosmetics (fairing. tank and seat). then simply replace them with readily-available Manx-inspired or stock pieces for a more traditional look. but still with the hot. Dunstall-ized motor. shouldered alloy wheels. Dunstall swept backs and silencers. with and modified brake. The Motorcycle Mechanics magazine cover photo and the black and white 1966 Dunstall Dominator catalog photo are just to illustrate how close this bike is to the real. period Dunstall machine.  

This bike is in very good cosmetic and mechanical condition. with minimal use since restoration. There's some "shelf" wear here and there (see photos of two blemishes on the fairing lower and cracks on the right ear of the fairing upper. behind the windscreen). The bike could use a professional detailing. but is still very clean. showing just under 40 miles since restoration in the mid-80s by a former Norton dealer. who I purchased the bike from four years ago. The bike was serviced in 2012 by NYCNorton and the sale will include a new Yuasa battery. For a featherbed Norton twin with a stamped steel primary chain case. it's relatively oil tight (only a few drops after running). The large gap between the top of the rear wheel and the rear fender in the photos is just a result of the rear suspension being at full extension with the bike on its center stand. Off the stand. it has a tight. road-hugging stance. I encourage would-be buyers to inspect the bike personally. I have described what comes to mind as far as condition. but cannot be held responsible for every nick or scratch or stress crack; this is an older restoration.
