DogT , years ago, for some unknown reason I tried starting mine with my house slippers on ( worn out low cut sneakers ) had a very sore black and purple wound on back of my leg for quite a while , boots work great though plus no worries if it don’t fire first or second try .... I also remember that video , think hobot had it up , even some sandals were being worn ..... dare devils for sureNice. You start it with those loafers? I tried mine with some crocks once, don't do that again. But then there's that Italian video that went around years ago with all the guys starting their Nort's with loafers on. Wish I were as young as you look. And your PM is taking care of you guys from what I read.
When I ride 'Pa, my trusty Norton, even after 45 years it still makes me smile! Inside and out!Well, it has been a long, long wait but it is finally here.
In a bit over a week I have put 300 miles on it (plus the 50 Matt did) so it's not too long before oil change and tappets etc.
I have to say that Matt's work and attention to detail is exceptional - makes me smile on the inside every time I ride it! The sound, the muted vibes and the torque - just glorious.
We're not in total lock-down yet but riding a a great way of self isolating.
BTW it is #134 on Matt's gallery

Thanks G81 - yes, I liked your colour so much, particularly on Interstate tinware (that I have always liked). so asked Matt to do mine in that colour.Here is CNW 119. I had to go to Matt's picture gallery to check out the color on your 134 build. Then I called Matt to ask what color 134 was. It was the same color as my 119.
