    I have just come back from Melbourne where all of my tooling, machining programs, etc., and the design for the new aluminium barrels has been examined and purchased by a well known player in the Norton game. He is also taking on the Fullauto Technologies name as well. So all is not lost.

    Well, it’s only a short list of who the buyer is likely to be. I know who I’d like it to be, it’ll be interesting to see ...

    Why the secrecy about the buyer’s identity?

    Fantastic news. I'm going to assume that the buyer gets somewhat of a "discount" versus the original startup / ramp-up cost it took to build all the heads that have been built this far, so (again) I assume the price will be the same or maybe even lower for the new heads in the future?? (we can only hope)

    Whoever it is, I hope they finish off what Ken started with the barrels.

    The world NEEDS nickasil barrels for Norton’s... 920 versions too...!

    its always good when you can hand off an assembly of hard work, and know it isn't going to die in your hands.

    trust the new owner is up to the challenge...
