1930 DT Norton

-SG- Above a photo of Frank Varey with his 1930 DT Norton with which he had a few successes before moving on to Rudges and other 'speedway irons.'  He had a successful career on the cinders ending up post war as manager of Sheffield speedway team. He also seems to have had a fancy for fast road bikes -  see earlier photo of him and his 1930 CS1 Norton.  Photos of the DT Norton are few and this is quite a good one as it shows well the reduced magneto chain housing length - just one of the special features of these twin port engines.
