1931 Model 18 Norton

-JdK- This 1931 Model 18 has recently been sold in The Netherlands. Not the most exciting or desirable Norton ever but very interesting nevertheless. Tt seems to be highly original and untouched but probably is based on a 16H!. One of the last models to use the Enfield rear hub, Horton front hub and Sturmey-Archer gearbox, it does already contain Norton's own front forks instead of Webb's product; one of the first Nortons to have the magdyno behind the engine but still with the left-hand exhaust and inverted levers.
