An ES2 Norton fitted with Earles front forks

A nice photo of what could be a late-1930s Model ES2 Norton fitted with Earles front forks from perhaps a BMW or Douglas Dragonfly. I'm not sure why you would want to replace fine Norton girders with a construction as heavy and clumsy as these; unless the reason is to fit a sprung luggage rack where the headlamp used to be. All of this will not improve handling of the machine.
