1937 Model 30 Norton

-SG- Circumstances prevented my attendance at the recent Pukekohe Classic Race meeting in NZ but Artie was there - for the 38th time - and sent me a couple of photos of Inia's recently restored 1937 International. This started as a very sad wreck - even the frame tubes needing replacement - and the bulk of the work was carried out by Ken McIntosh. The power unit is one Artie used and developed in his own Manx for some forty years. The bike was ridden briefly at the meeting by Lyndsey Kyle - I say 'briefly' as Lyndsey was unlucky enough to have an 'off' although the bike was undamaged apart from a footrest and the doll's head gearchange.
