I was able to find my local Norton dealer today. He had cut back on building maintenance.

Beautiful photo.
The Kansas City area actually had a dealer 'Penner's Cycle Barn' back in the day.

‘72 Roadster front and center leading the pack of stablemates, ‘80 Honda CB750F
, ‘76 BMW R75/6, and , ‘07 Aprilia Tuono 1000R. All dusted off and gassed up with ethanol free premium in the last couple days. Riding weather with very little traffic on the back roads. No place open to stop and swill a beer mid ride however.

Nice collection. I had an 07 Tuono also. In a weird sense I had felt like if Norton had kept going from the 70's, they would have morphed into something like the Tuono.
Yeh, it's weird. I really enjoyed the T.

I'm really digging the 72 with the Dunstalls. More pix please..

Nice. I had an ‘81 Honda CB750F for a while. silver. Rode it from Seattle to NOLA and used it down there as my main transport around town.

Very respectable collection. I still have my late kid brother's '80 CB750F, and my late best friend's '72 R75/5. Both "proper" classic bikes as I'm sure you are aware.

Thanks everyone for your appreciative responses. Nice to be part of a group that, unlike some of my friends and relations, never says anything like: “Four motorcycles! What do you need four motorcycles for?! You can only ride one at a time!” Since this is the Norton Forum, and there were a couple of requests, here’s another couple of pics of the current version, my ‘72 slightly modified Roadster, acquired summer of 2017, along with a comparative shot of the one that, although not my first moto, was my first big road bike, and solidified my lifelong love affair with all things 2 wheeled, my also slightly modified 1971 Commando, circa 1974 or so. The ‘72 was the first, followed a year later by the Beemer, and then last summer by the Honda, of my effort to replicate some of the most notable bikes of my youth.

I finally replaced my 750 motor (nothing wrong with motor, but DID have to replace the gearbox anyway. ) So ... along with a new rebuilt gearbox, I installed my rebuilt 850 motor. Of course, I also installed new Andover Norton front and rear isolastic mounts. And as you all know, I removed EVERYTHING ... except the front end and the battery tray. At least the motor matches what the sidecovers show ...
