1932 Model 40 Norton

This is Göran's Model 40 Norton. According to the works records it was despatched to Nyströms in Sweden on the 25th of February 1932. The records further read "Built by Joe Craig for 50% petrol, 25% Benzole and 25% alcohol". It participated in the Swedish GP in 1933. It was then sold to several non racing persons but after WWII when the racing started again the old pre war machines were the only bikes available and the old Norton did a very good job on races like hill climbs, dirt track, ice races and the TT.
