1926 Model 18 Norton

General drive side view showing primary chain cover
note: saddle top is a temporary replacement

-SG- This 1926 Model 18 Norton is arguably one of the most original machines in existence and goes as well as it looks. It came with the original tool roll, saddle top and John Bull rubber cover on the gear lever knob, most of which have perished long since. Further is still wears beaded edge tyres and uses its original B and B Sports carburettor.
