Trixie the story

Post by Project 588 » Tue Jul 26, 2016 1:11 pm

For those who are interested in the the story of Trixie and would like to know more about the bike it might be worth buying the August edition of Practical Sportsbikes magazine which is out now. With some encouragement from some local N.O.C. branch members I entered her in PS special build of the year competition and was lucky enough to have enough votes to win. PS have done a special eight page feature on the bike with some great photos. This is a report done by a magazine that has hardly ever featured Norton's let alone a rotary. The article includes some additional information on Trixie and a test ride report. Hope this is of interest to membersCheers George

Went out and bought my 1st ever copy of 'Practical Sportsbikes' -- unbelievable / fantastic (from one who struggles to change a spark-plug). Amazing achievement. Congrats.
