PLEASE SCROLL DOWN THE PAGES…… there is a lot of information on this web site

This web site is dedicated to all motorcyclists who are interested in NORTON SINGLE CYLINDER motorcycles. I have been riding, racing, repairing and playing with these unapproachable machines for the past thirty years, while practising as a trick-cyclist, and I am now available to provide a service to genuine enthusiasts who share my passion. I am not a commercial enterprise. I work on my own and this obsession with old Norton motorcycles is my life long hobby.

 My main interest is with racing machines…….

 Flat Tank Racers of the Twenties,

 Internationals from the Thirties,

  Manx from the fifties and early sixties,

 Edwardian mounts,

Be-spoke Specials and ‘Bobbers’

"Our services are, however, at all times available to give any information that may be required which will facilitate obtaining the maximum efficiency, and we invite Norton riders to enlist our aid whenever in doubt; our services will be freely and willingly placed at their disposal".

This is an extract from the Norton maintenance manual of 1924 and it sums up both the philosophy of those pioneers at Bracebridge Street, now sadly gone, and myself, still joyfully going!!

 

On each of these web site pages there is an extensive amount of information about SINGLE CYLINDER machines...............

PLEASE NOTE…WHEN SENDING PICTURES DO NOT MAKE THEM ANY BIGGER THAN 1,000 kB

 and if you do not get a reply to an e-mail enquiry it will be because:

·         Occasionally I get a "failed mail" message after I have sent you a reply but for some reason you are unable to receive.

·         You have written about twin cylinder machines………no interest and no knowledge. Your letter does not make sense.

·         I have not had the time to reply.
