This is just a long shot however am hoping there are some "Elder" Norton Owners on this forum that either live in Mass. Worcester area or have lived there in the early 70's that might be able to help me. In 1971 I purchased a 1972 850 Norton Roadster from the Norton Dealer in Worcester Mass. I was in the Marines at the time and only stationed at Ayer Mass for three months. I picked up the bike late Saturday from the Dealer and was going to get insurance the following Monday. Needless to say the bike was stolen off the Army Base at Ft. Devens early Sunday morning and of course no insurance. My goal is to find out if this dealer is still in business or maybe there are some records that they still might have. I have forgot the Norton's dealers name and could find nothing on the internet so will try the local biker folks. If I could contact these people and if by luck they would have records, I could get the serial number of the bike and maybe find it. The internet provides much good info as we all know. So anyone from the Mass. area that could help me, it would be appreciated.
