1940 Model WD16H Norton

-JdK- Roberto in the UK and his mini digger came across these remains of this Norton, identified as a 1940 WD16H by the number. The owner of a scrapyard selling used bike parts since the 1950s explained to me once that he always discarded frames; they took up too much space and there was only demand for engines, gearboxes and smaller parts anyway.
