    It doesn't say Imperial gallons. 9 litres is 2.3(2.377) US gallons or 1.979 Imperial gallons.

    Like 70's fashion and hair styles the HiRider didn't age well. Now its one of those things that are so ugly they're cool. Its nice see some folks are saving some.

    According to story, they were quite a big seller in Western States and were the second most pricey Norton at the time.
    Makes me want to reconsider potentially selling off the seat/sissy/ape hangers/tank to make back expenditures of Roadster-ization I've done.
