A disturbing picture; this must have been a serious crash, ripping off the front forks altogether. It looks like an early (1932-1934) M30 or M40; it still has the Sturmey Archer gearbox that was used before Norton's own product from 1934 on. For sure a racer; wrap-around oiltank, chinpad, open pipe, rearset footrests, Dunlop saddle, racing number plates.
