How many Nortons does that make for you?

ended going with uShip. Cost me more but I’m getting it when I wanted it (now!). Bike is currently going through Paducah, Kentucky. ETA is Wednesday.

Shipping was $750 plus $50 uShip fee ($800 total). Transporter pays $150 to uShip. Next time I can go direct with transporter and save $200.

Yeah, ironically neither of those vehicles were ever updated quickly enough and they both perished.

Apparently not entirely! Seems they are both on their way to caring new owners . . . B)

Maybe not so much "used" as rebuilt/re-engineered/ricostruire one part at a time. Reminds me of some V11 I know . . .

It's got a healthy patina. Also with the size of stable that my brother has he can't get to all of them. Nice problem to have.

Not yet, he got an ST2 so he's good for now.

Cleaned it up a bit and took it for a ride this morning with my cousin. One kick when cold. Just little cosmetic things to do. Maybe some new shocks as these are the original ones. She'll get a little tarted up. Goes like stink.

Now to be fair the Dominator was from the late 40s not the 30s! The rest I can’t disagree with.
