Back agin

Post by jagjohn1 » Sun Dec 01, 2019 10:50 am

I have just dug out my old Norton T shirt and what it actually reads is
"My success is due to the unapproachable Norton "
All the best

Hello JB
I have owned the bike for approximately 5 years, I bought it from an old boy who was ill.
It has only done 235 miles from new. It is part of my collection, I have not done one mile on it as it is virtually mint, but I do run it up on a regular basis
Regards
John

Before you sell the bike, do yourself a favor and ride the thing,not just a poodle round the block,but 50/60 mile or so(and seeing as you live in Kent, a bit of a blast on the M2 orM20 wink)I guarantee you will find it a very unique experience,nothing at all like the Nortons of yore(or any other bike for that matter)I have had my Classic for 30 years,(and traveled nearly 70,000 miles)and I still get the "grin factor" when I wind the old girl up through the gears,(that exhaust note really is something else,totally unique cool)J.B.

Hi Jb
Thanks for your advice
I rode an ex police one years ago and know what you mean, but this is such a unique bike with such low mileage I feel I would leave the pleasure to a new owner, meanwhile I still enjoy my Indian Chief but that's just me.
All the best
John
