Default Found an old snap of my last Norton

This was taken in front of junior officer housing in Millington in the mid 80s. It was the last of the Nortons I owned. I had a 500cc single and half dozen 750s and 850ccs including a '71 Dunstall-Norton (one of only two imported to the US that year). This was an '73 850 if memory serves, set up with a California Sidecar. It was a real hoot to pilot. Taking my two young boys to soccer practice on base at maybe 25mph with them pleading for me to lift the car's wheel was a riot. Obviously I was domesticated at the time.

The bike went with me to MINSY in '85 where the hack was stolen on base in '86 in a shipyard parking lot. I did get a very good payoff from the Navy on that and subsequently was made an offer for the bike I couldn't refuse.


Certifiable member of the gun toting, over 60, bucket list workin', crazed retiree, bald is beautiful club!
