And, for the side view:
Thanks Nater! I'll post a few more when I get a chance.
1969 and 1970 S.
In the shed with the top end apart for Jim's exhaust thread repair.
The pistons and bores are incredibly free of any scoring, so here's hoping that I can merely re-ring the old girl. Once the pieces are clean, a quick feeler gauge check will prove that out. What really sucks is that the good Spring riding weather is just starting to come on strong.
Norton to day.
Greetings from Italy
Here's my first complete Norton, picked it up last weekend off of Craigslist. I just resumed work on the one I'm building from parts (I started a thread on it a couple of years ago).
Greetings from Italy.
That's beautiful Piero.
Really, really nice job.
Especially for an Italian...
Italians do it better!
But it would be much better if we stopped with nationalities and we consider only all Europeans!
Lovely!! Great to see a gaggle of Nortons any day!!!
It looks like las bellas ragazzas are impressed as well!
I agree with you.
Plural is: "le belle ragazze".

Sorry Piero, I dont mean to muff up italian!

Time I got the old girl fired up again. The K2FC magneto was rebuilt and only did a few miles but that was then, this is now. What's the best battery-less self-generating ignition these days? Anything electronic or do they all need a battery?
Great bike !!
With regard to the ignition, try www.electrexworld.co.uk
They do a lighting/ignition , and just ignition kit. Look up stator kits on their site STK-102D and STK 012.
I use one of their ignition kits on a BSA Victor, it all works just fine.
Quite a few tricky bits on that bike. I like it.
Welcome to the forum.
Very interesting bike there Peter.
Care to tell us a little about it?
Eddie; just klick one of the pics, and there´s more, both pics and reading. After looking at that, I´d classify this bike as a couple of notches above "very" interesting.....
