That 850-in-a-crate is back on ebay. There's a Buy It Now for only $17,900. If anyone here is interested I'll promise not to compete against you! :)

Well I guess it's still cheaper than one from CNW or Kenny D.
Hope the new owner doesn't plan on riding it.

After tearing my '75 MK III down to the last nut and bolt I can tell you every peice of rubber on it was as hard as a rock and the plastic insulation on the wiring not much better. Funny how the stuff thats supposed to bend or flex doesn't after 30 years.

BTW I won't be bidding either.

Debbie,

$17,900 is about ten times what new in the crate '75 Nortons were selling for in '76-'77 when the local dealer here was just trying to get rid of his inventory. Someone is really trying to prove classic bikes are a good investment.

I'm off to Laguna Seca for the Superbike races this afternoon. Norton has a tent in the infield and I'm hoping they bring a pre-production 952. I got some photos of the 952 "Mule" last year.
