1938 Model ES2 Norton


-SG- Thanks to Adam who has drawn my attention to this very presentable ES2 which is for sale in Scotland. It apparently spent 25 years in a glass case in Hawick Museum, which, as we have mentioned before, has sundry exhibits linked to local TT hero Jimmie Guthrie. The current seller says it is 1938 and if this is the case, then surely it would not have been actually owned by Jimmie G himself, who was killed in the 1937 German Grand Prix.
