I stumbled onto a list of pictures while looking for my friends #280 xv920. I haven't scrolled through them all but there are a few Norton's. Not sure if the triple is Norton or not

Thanks for posting. That XV920 looks pretty special. I’d love to see some more pics of it without the fairing.

Some very nice other bikes there as well including the Quantel Cosworth. Then there are the Buells :confused:

I had the good fortune of riding the Ron Wood Rotax single at sears point (#228). Working out his monoshock frame.

Lots of cool bikes there. I remember a lot of them from BOTT races I was in back in the '80s. The black and silver Commando with number 407 belonged to my racing buddy, Marc Field. It had a short stroke 750 engine that I built for him. The yellow production racer partially visible behind him was mine. The picture has to be from the late '80s or very early '90s. Fun times. This is a picture of our Norton lineup at Dayton in 1990. The two yellow bikes are mine, the black and silver is Marc's, and the black one is Rob Tuluie's. Three Commandos and the ex-Jim Schmidt monoshock. I've posted this picture before, but it's still one of my favorites.
