1929 Model CS1 Norton

Ron Beecroft and CS1, probably in 1958

Nigel of Vintagebike Ltd sent these pics of his 1929 CS1. The CS1 was used quite a bit for sprints and the photo above was taken at the Brighton Speed Trials, probably in the late fifties. The then owner, Ron Beecroft, ran it on alcohol fuel and it was very quick. It was rebuilt by a chap in Essex in the early years of this century.
