Viktor's 1925 Model 18 Norton

This is Viktor's bike; Viktor lives in the Czech Republic. "I´m a designer by profession and renovating broken parts is my hobby. When I bought my Norton twenty years ago it was the terrrible wreck - see the two pictures above. After years of collecting missing parts and rebuilding many of the components my motorcycle starts to look like a proper flat tank Norton - see the two pics below. I´m still looking for other parts : a chain cover, rear stand and double silencer. The frame- and engine number suggest that the year of production is 1925."
