Hello guys It has been a while since I posted as I've been a little distracted with other projects! And now the poor "Shep" Atlas project may need to wait a little longer. Long story short, I have bought a 1961 Norton Manxman, which I understand is the first Manxman. It has engine number 18-93601 and Shop number 7. I've been reading all your Manxman threads here and on the NOC website since learning about this bike. I have learned a great deal from you all and am grateful for your advice and the terrific information shared! Attached are a few pictures from today, when my friend @Ronnie and I picked up the bike from the shipping company. I'm sure that I will have tons of questions and I'm also hoping to post a video log of the rebuild and stay actively engaged. My mate @swooshdave is also offering moral support As you will see from the pictures, it's going to need some TLC, but I'm really looking forward to working on it in the near future.. once I get a couple of friend's bikes out of the garage! Looking forward to connecting with other Manxman members Best wishes Mike At the shipping Co. this morning First Glance Looks okay from 15'... maybe 20'
