1927 16H Norton

This 16H used to belong to me and featured in other blogs; looking back I found I did not include too many photo's which is a shame because it is a highly original bike.

It's a 1927 model, despatched the 8th of March 1927. Typical features include the Druid forks and the square oiltank. The carb is an Amac controlled by levers, the magneto ML and it still uses beaded edge tyres.

The toolboxes were replacements for missing parts and I have to admit that I exchanged the original saddle for the one now fitted; but for the rest there should be little wrong with this bike.

I did take off the gaslights; they distract from the elegant lines of the machine
