A DOHC Norton from 1937 ...

-SG- Several months ago David Crawford (author of the Stanley Woods biography) sent various photos of a restored 1937 racing spec. Model 30 belonging to Harry Turner, a late friend in Northern Ireland. These were taken, I believe, nearly thirty-five years back and show the very presentable machine, which is unusual in that it has DOHC valve operation. Richard's view is that the cambox was probably a post war fitment but it is difficult to be sure as the bike disappeared after the owner's death in 1988 or '89, and has not been seen since.

Where is it now?  Any news or ideas welcome!
