Norton belt driver !


-SG- Thanks to Martin for this 1928 'Motor Cycle' article about riding single speed belt drivers! The author has only mentioned the magic word Norton once in his text but even without that it would be pretty clear that is what he is talking about. From a single speed Model 9 in about 1920 to his new OHC machine in 1928 ... re-learning old techniques on the one hand and the march of progress on the other!
