Norton Motors, Ltd., Bracebridge Street, Birmingham.

Chief interest centres round the 490 c.c. overhead-valve-engined Norton, which is the most recent addition to the range of these famous machines. A feature which at once catches the eye is the arrangement of supplementary return movement springs on the push rods. The extra radiating fins at the point where the exhaust pipe leaves the detachable cylinder head are well placed to ensure maximum cooling effect, and the fins on the cylinder barrel itself are brought unusually low down.
