Mark's 1929 Model ES2 Norton

Seen at Brooklands, this 1929 ES2 is not completely correct; the original Sturmey Archer gearbox, Webb forks and Enfield front hub have long ago been ditched and replaced by (most likely) WD16H Norton parts. The magneto is a later Lucas, the carb a 1930s Amal 76. Still, it looks great and let's hope it never gets restored.

Mark cared about the environment, note the little container that collects the oil rom the breather, complete with a tap; he probably reused the oil!
