Graham Goodman and 1928 Model CJ / CS1 Nortons

1928 Model CJ Norton
1928 Model CS1 Norton

-SG- We have had an earlier photo of Norton trials expert Graham Goodman and here are a couple more, thank to Peter Roydhouse. The first shows Graham dressed for chilly weather on OX9041 - the ex '28 TT 350 (click this link and this one) - and the second shows him in a more serious mood on OX9055 - another of the 1928 works machines but a CS1. Dates when the photos were taken are not known but probably 1929/30. The OX9055 photo shows standard tyres, while the CJ is shod with the permitted trials tyres of the period - more akin to post-war 'knobblies' used for scrambles.
