1938 Model 30 Norton

They still show up! Dom in France unearthed the remains of a very nice c1938 Model 30 International racer. It has been dismantled and has been out in the open for a while but it will be rescued. The crankcases and cambox are in magnesium, barrel and cylinder head in alloy. Magneto is Lucas racing. The flywheels are polished or perhaps plated. All Don knows about the bike's history is it was running in the south of France with Leopold Barde and it did well in the Ventoux races. Dom is now looking for the correct narrow Norton girder forks; contact us when you have a set and are willing to part with it.
