Project Description

NYC Norton received a call from artist Sebastian Errazuriz, who was interested in collaborating to build conceptual motorbike.  A meeting was set, and within seconds of his arrival, an NYC Norton 1007 caught his eye and became the muse for Errazuriz’s own unique vision on function vs. form.  A new bike was built, a Seeley MK2 chassis and Norton Commando motor, 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 doors even opened to the public; a testament to the desirability of both form and function.  After Art Basel, Time Lapse spent a year on display at The Carnegie Museum of Art.

NYC Norton Seeleys have won numerous championships and races the world over, but the Grand Prix chassis is a very rideable platform for custom street-bike specials. Our Seeley builds have been featured on TV and in print, displayed in museums and international design shows, and the centerpieces of some of the most exclusive motorcycle events around the world. These bikes are a highly technical, exclusive special, built around a replica of the famous Colin Seeley chassis, with subtle additions of modern componentry that make this exotic beauty as surprisingly tractable on the city streets as it is on the racing circuit. And, form following function, it is probably one of the most magnificent machines you’ll ever see.
