What a fine looking bike, new electric start all the mod cons, fantastic.

Invest in lots of polishing cloths :D Ban any kids with sticky hands :shock:

Have many happy miles :mrgreen:

One small fault on the bike :roll: . . . . . . . . . mirror is on the wrong side if you're based in the UK :lol:

That is one slick ride.
So many polished bits, you're likely to blind everyone on the road on a sunny day. :)

Glad you guys like it. This was a fun build considering all the cool features Richard wanted on it like the e-start, dual disc front end, alloy body work, stage 3 engine and other nice details

Let's hope for a nice long and dry summer in the UK

Thanks for the nice feedback everyone !!

PS. Click.....it did get a second mirror before leaving the shop. Just wanted to keep one mirror when taking the pictures. Maybe one of these days you guys can start riding on the 'correct' side of the road 8)

If the numbers indicate the numbers of CNW bikes built, could a normal person understand building 121 Norton Motorcycles? Still my dream job.

Stan,

Actually, there are also 10 Ltd Edition Cafe's built to date, so a few more

That said, there are few 'missing numbers' as well. About 4 of those

I suspect I'm not done quiet yet

Matt and I are still building my #1. But I am already building #2 in head.
Good to hear from you Matt, Deb and I are going to be out there the end of August.
See you then

Damn snazzy ride my friend. Just when I think that my bike looks pretty good, something like your new ride comes up and humbles me. Kind of a reality bitch-slap. Nice job Matt and also congrats to you for making your dream come true and also for writing the big check.
