Racer 2010 | The Evolution of a Norton Racer: 2010

2010: The Kindness Of Strangers   Winter 2009: Spot the race bike? This has become a repetitive story - bike gets built, bike gets raced, bike gets torn down , bike gets built back up again...

This is my 1962 Slimline frame sitting on Great Jones street in Manhattan sometime in January 2007 after a healthy dose of media blasting; this so I can find the cracks and flaws hidden under the paint. I present the 2007 rebuild. Chasing that chatter that plagued me in '06.   After some crack repairs (see the front mount for spot welds) it was determined that this old ... read more
