Hi,

attachment shows what I think is a shell from an early Dominator. Help identifying would be much appreciated. Thanks Paul.

It looks very similar to the one on a 1957 Dominator, with the cutouts for speedometer, ammeter, switch and logo

Thank you both,

it makes sense as there was a wideline frame 1957 with it. The owner of the lamp and a pair of mudguards wanted more for them than I was happy paying so I just bought the frame. He left the lamp and guards with me for now to ask around/show to my Norton owning pals but they're all skint as well!! Paul.

That one looks like it came from a coil ignition bike with the PSR8 switch. Did coil ignition exist on the Dommy in 1957?. Just got my spare 1960 coil ign shell and its identical .Did the earlier Mag/dyno wideline use the same one or was the switch hole different?.

Hi Robert,

I think like you coil ignition was a 60s innovation. I've tried adding pics of the mudguards but they are too big for the site. In fairness to the seller he never dated them just said they were genuine and hard to come by. It's beyond my knowledge hence posting the question. Thanks Paul.

1959 & 1960 ES2's (wideline) were coil ignition, the shell looks correct for one of those.
