Originally conceptualized and commissioned by John Magyar, the first NYC Norton Seeley Streetfighter was as a 1007cc monster with the sole purpose of becoming the most feared machine on the big city streets. The bike twirled the dyno up to 90s at the rear wheel, and spun up quicker than any Commando we’ve had in our hands. Careful use of the throttle was necessary.
This beautiful bike caught the eye and became the muse for artist Sebastian Errazuriz’s own unique vision on function vs. form. A new bike adorned in Sebastian’s alloy trim (known as “Time Lapse”) was featured at the legendary Art Basel Miami show in December, 2013, and sold within 20 minutes of the VIP preview, before the show even opened to the public; a testament to the desirability of both form and function. The bike is now on display at The Carnegie Museum of Art.
Now with more in production, the Streetfighter platform has proven to be more than a one-off pipe dream, combining the highest-performance AND reliability of a road-going Seeley Norton to date.
These bikes are available in 750cc, 850cc, 920cc, and 1007cc all in street-legal trim.
