1939 Norton Model 50 Front/Rear Mudguards & Handlebars

Posted by emmalouise_stapleton at February 27. 2017

I am trying to get my dad's 1939 Norton Model 50 (that is currently in bits) built but we're missing front and rear mudguards and handlebars. Please can anyone help me find them? Or templates that I can get replicas made from? Many thanks for reading this, Emma.

Originals are like hens teeth. But, if you look on E bay or British bike parts there are some half decent pattern ones made in India available. Unlike the petrol tanks they are easily rectified if they do not fit properly. They should have the Panama hat type ridge in the middle and it should flare out at the front tip. The rear one does not have the ridge on the bottom removable section, only on the main part.

Ant problems, don't hesitate to contact me by PM. I have been there, done that with my 1939 deluxe ES2.

Can you please send some piccies?

Hi there I'm new to this so haven't yet figured out how to PM you but thanks so much for responding. The bike is in bits at the moment as the guy who I've found to build it for me won't start until I have the other parts. I have been searching a lot of this week and can't find much at this point! Have I posted the message i the right place for people who might be able to help me to see it?

Attached are images of the handlebars and you can see the mudguards to on some of them.

Many thanks, Emma
