1930s Model 19 speedway Norton

Garth from New Zealand sent these pics of his mother and dad, Elva and John Henderson and their speedway Norton. Both pictures were taken during the 1947-48 season at the Western Springs speedway in Auckland. The engine is clearly Norton and the height of the barrel suggests a Model 19; the shape suggests that the engine dates from the early 1930s. Frame and wheels seem to be from another make than Norton.  Does anyone know more about this motorcycle?
