1936 Model 30 Norton - Linwood Wiggins

Linwood Wiggins

-From Barry in Canada- Here is an interesting Inter "barn find" I just acquired. I am the third owner. The first owner was Linwood Wiggins, from the Windsor Ontario area, and shown above at the Windsor Speed trials 1939 in a picture I fortuitously came across in an old Detroit area Indian rider's club photo/scrapbook. Lin's bike was fast and he won many competitions.

He also must have had a lot of spare time as much of the machine was "swiss cheesed" by him with a breast drill according to his and my now sadly gone friend Bob McCoy the second owner and a successful racer himself, mainly with a 1931 TT Rep Rudge.
