-JdK- An email from John in the UK: "My Norton has spent the majority of its life in the Isle of Man. It was supplied to Vic Horsman in February 1928 and was shipped to agent Brown, Douglas, for J. Wiiliamson, Glen Hotel, Laxey in 1934. It came back to the UK in 2007.
I've had vintage bikes all my life, mainly Rudges, although my Father was a cammy Norton man. He raced in VMCC meetings for about 20 years. I bought my 16H in memory of him as he always wanted a flat tank Norton. I must admit, I'm impressed with its performance and ride quality - far better than a Rudge!
