The Unapproachable Norton

1940 Norton Model 16H

The 16H was a development of the colonial model 16C of 1921 which had higher ground clearance (H for Home, C for Colonial).

This machine is a 1940 civilian model, which has spent time in France and Germany before being bought from a well-known dealer in the Netherlands and shipped to New Zealand in 2008, where it was displayed at the motorcycle museum in Nelson.
