Now I would love one of these Norton Scrambler models, just too cool.

One Last Step…
So I am nearly at the end of my journey, and have one last step to go, in the small matter of getting the Norton registered (getting a title for the US contingent). I started this whole crazy dream back in November 2011, with just a frame I found on Ebay….
And now here I am five years later, with a dating certificate telling me the Norton was built at the Norton works factory in Birmingham back on 26th June 1952, and was despatched to Bennet’s of Southampton. Who knows what the bike got up to in the intervening years, but it is once again a fully working Norton, and ready to be out on the open road next summer. Just one final piece of paperwork, that is all I need.

I have a few more pictures from Popham, there are always some nice bikes both in the show area, and in the carpark…
I quite fancied this 1969 T120 project, but is it right?
Nice old Guzzi in the car park.
Trident Cafe Racer.
Nice Yamaha in the car park.
BSA? SR400 special.
One of the smaller events I try to support each year is the local Velocette club meet, at the Cherry Tree pub, in Stoke Row. And once again it never disappointed, with great weather, and some lovely bikes.
And while the Velocette’s looked great, and some of the other attending bikes were also nice, the bike that stood head and shoulders above everything there was a wonderful old 1920 Indian, in original paint, and thankfully unrestored.

It is getting close to that time of year again, great rally, well organised, so why not come along and see for yourself.
I had a little blast up the road today, fast & loud would sum it up, sure there are still things to sort out, not least of which is the registration, but what a moment this is for me, it has truly been a labour of love over the las few years.

Saturday was another Kempton Jumble, organised by EGP, Eric and the crew, and very good again, they do such a good well organised event, easily the best auto jumble in the UK.
Best bike in the car park was this Matchless, the attention to detail was damn near faultless.
