1928 Model CS1 Norton - Sold

Sold at yesterday's Bonhams sale, fetching €31,203 inc. premium "This matching numbers (frame no. 32623, engine no. CS39055) CS1 was purchased by the current vendor's father in 1967. Described as in generally good/very good condition."

-SG- Although it looks very tidy it has been drastically over tarted and there is a vast excess of plating all over the place, including of all things, the brake back plates. I suspect the fuel tank may be Model 18 and it no longer has the correct filler cap. The steering damper knob is also rather dire! Mudguards are replica and don't fit properly. Original lights are a plus point as are matching numbers for those for whom such things matter!
