I love riding featherbed Nortons and reading relaxing threads like this one.
Probably like the former more though!
Cheers

By the way, I recently bought a set of orphan 650 crankcases on ebay (didn't want to "damage" the matching numbers cases off my '64 650SS putting the CNW/Jim C reed breather mod on it). The engine number of the orphan is 94437 (65 - no "C" 122) so looks like it could be manxman?

Hi
I found and purchased a cylinder for my 650 engine and an inner and outer primary.

Thhe inner primary is missing the sliding portion for sealing behind the clutch, so I will have to fab up something.
Not sure what those pistons are, I don,t think they are stock.
This gives me everything I need now to assemble this engine. My plan is to place into a featherbed frame i have and make a 650 special.
One part of me was glad for the oppurtunity to obtain the parts, another was saddened to see, this bike broke down for parts as it seemed to be all there.

Well of course it's a Manxman with 18 -94437 stamp on it would have been built in mid -November 1960

Those numbers and words might require some clarification. ?

If the number 122 appears there (which is not clear if they do or don't) then they will be 88 cases ?

My friend had a Manxman. Prior to that I had never seen a Norton with twin carbs.

Sorry Rohan - must have been snoozing.
Best shown in pics I think.
