Can you tell me why you wouldn't want a CNW Norton? I would appreciate any feedback...
Couple of reasons: Geography is the first issue - I live 100 miles from where the Factory was
and a few thousand away from Colorado
Secondly, as a few of the other guys have already said, it's all about the whole experience, and not just having a quality ride in the garage.
The thought of letting someone else do the work is a bit like letting them have all the fun!
This is what I bought (my son wasn't part of the deal!). It was in need of a ground-up resto, and took around a year on and off.
And this is what I finished up with (although I did get RGM to do the Master Cylinder re-sleeve)

And because I enjoyed the whole experience so much... I bought another, which is meandering along sloooowly!
So what it amounts to is I get a much bigger kick from being able to say 'I did that' - If I could afford for someone to do it all for me I may feel differently
