1925 Model 16H Norton - For sale

-JdK- Richard in the UK is selling his very nice 1925 Model 16H Norton. Send us an email for his contact details when you are interested.

Richard: "I bought the bike in July 1971 and swapped it for an Austin Chummy in 1975. It changed hands again for a short while and I bought it back again in about 1980. While it was out of my care it had a conrod break and the motor was changed from 24056 to the one that is still fitted, 6130. The frame number is 16600. I have the old log book from 1958 and a scattering of photos and a letter from a previous owner (below); he went from Worthing to Edinbrough and back as a young student, a total of 940 miles! I have some engine spares to let go with the bike. 

It got used, not polished! It never once let me down and I have had years of fun on it. Ill health dictates that I now need to sell it. I would hope it finds a new home with a rider and not get repainted and put in a glass box! Asking price is £17.000."
