1930 Model DT Norton in the USA


-SG- Back in Nov 2013 Barry sent us an excerpt from the American magazine 'The Motorcyclist' of  Sept.1933 showing a seemingly standard 1930 DT Model.  According to the records only one DT Norton was sent to USA so it is reasonable to assume this was it!  Fast forward to last month and I am told a DT Head, Barrel, Rocker box were on EBay in USA  - incorrectly described as being parts from a Model 20.  The head has seen considerable damage to one of the exhaust ports and the fins are in need of repair ... Is this all that's left of the one and only DT machine to go to the States?
