I bet I have 5 or 6 sets of triple trees. Remind me how to differentiate the 850 from the 750 triple trees.

I saw that one Rohan. Would jump if I knew what it norton it was from. I am sure most people would just label one for 750 cus that was the most popular, Don't want to purchase someones excess inventory without knowing what model it was from!! I think GrandPaul has the right idea!! I certanly can't tell them apart by looking!!! Thats why I specified late model 750. 1971drum brake. From this basket case I am putting together. Have the top part all nice and powder coated silver. Now I need a matching bottom. I thought it was strange the top section all wrapped up like it came straight from the powder coater. Now I can get the front end together. Opened it up. No bottom.AH.The fun of a basket case!!

I'm fairly sure that would have to be late model 750 drum brake.
(those patches of weld look ugly, but the $price is right)

But I've not even seen one before - I've only played with 850s.
The 850 ones have ANG underneath them, and are for the disk brake.
As GP sez, the rake is a bit different - for disk brake use.the fork tubes
are angled slightly backwards in them (!!)

For those of you looking for used norton stuff give qside a try. I purchased some parts from him. He took paypal for payment, excellent service, timely shipping and good quality parts at a fair price. I highly recommend him!!
