The Unapproachable Norton

Norton International 1959 For Sale

Norton-1959-Inter-Symons-09.jpg
I bought a genuine Norton twin leading shoe brake plate for the front brake, which is an 8" full width hub. When set up correctly and with new linings this proved to be a perfectly adequate brake for the performance and weight of the bike. I fitted Manx replica rear suspension units from Alf Hagon, but fitted softer springs as I found the ride a bit hard. (probably because the bike is so light) I had the front fork stanchions hard chromed and ground and fitted Manx springs from Summerfield. I fitted taper roller head bearings, and a genuine Manx Norton steering damper.
