Hi all, posting here for a friend who doesn't do a lot of computering. We owns mostly BSA's & wants to start into Nortons, not many for sale where he lives, so he asked me to try to come up with one for him. He is a regular guy, works on all his own bikes, would prefer a complete bike needing a full restoration, but would consider anything he can find.
PM me if you can help.
Magneto & Dynamo restorations & supplies
My Bikes 1950 Norton Model 7: 1952 Norton ES2 1957 Norton Model 77 1960 Norton Nomad 600cc 1961 Norton ES2 (slimline) 1964 Norton Atlas Scrambler 1972 Bultaco Alpina
The US seemed to get many more of the Atlas 750 model.
The single carb Norton 650 Mercury was used by the traffic police in NZ so there are a few about down here. But to the general public they were outsold by Triumph by a considerable margin.
A good bike but not a common one.
There are some common parts with the latter Commando but the main things, frame, fittings, most of the engine are different. Other bits are closer gearbox for example is mostly the same or can be adapted but the gearbox mainshaft is a different length.
