1946 Model 18 Norton

Stretching the rules a bit, as this Norton is too young to feature on this website; but the photo found on Flickr is too nice not to include.

It's a 1946 Model 18. Giveaways are the front brake drum on the right-hand side of the machine, the way the headlight is fitted to the forks with four brackets and - just visible- the smooth appearance of the upright gearbox.
