Side valve racer

Now this is interesting; an all-original Norton flat tank side valve racer; early twenties by the look of it.

Nothing is less true, it was built from parts in Verralls workshop in 2006. According to Ian, the parts from his store rooms just happened to fit together without too much hassle; it runs fine and it looks great!

Off course it's a mix of parts form different years, models and makes. But why bother building shiny and original motorcycles when these 'bastards' look so much better!
