1936 Model 30 Nortons

-JdK- Two splendid photos of 1936 Model 30 Nortons (contributed by Keith).

-Richard- These Nortons date from 1936. They are to full racing specification and were only available to capable riders through an authorised Norton dealer. The defining components for 1936 are the curved cradle of the frame, the full magnesium engine castings (the first year these were available to non works riders) but both bikes still have the single sided 7" front brakes, which were replaced in 1937 by the 8" conical cast sg iron brake.
