For Sale
1938 Model 40 International. Retains all original accessories when sold in August 1938, Sprung frame (large plungers), alloy head and barrel, dynamo, 120mph speedo, Altette horn. Some evidence she went through the race shop at Bracebridge street. Early history unknown but she lived in a loft in bits for 25 years or so until bought by Sam Lovegrove (Shed and Buried fame) in about 2001. Rebuilt by Sam using all original parts. Sold to a chap in Cornwall, subsequently bought by me in 2005 from Lanivet Motors of Bodmin. Extensively used by me for club rallies, shows for which she has won many trophy’s including best OHC at this years Norton day. Does not need to be polished to win shows, 2019 she won best OHC at the Begonia rally covered in mud. Also paraded on track-days and raced 2014-17 & 2019 at Gedinne in Belgium finishing all entered races with exception to 2017 when we kissed some straw bails. Also paraded and raced in 2018 at the Red Bull circuit finishing all parades and races. Overtaken by Agostini on the last parade lap, had to wait for him!
A very rare Norton, poss only one other (a 500) with big plungers in road going form known. The NMM don’t have a road bike like it.
In vgc for year, a few minor dents and scratches. Mag and Dynamo rebuilt 2020.
Very easy starting, for all ages, and very smooth.
Reason for sale, can’t think of one.
£19,500 ono (poss px for something interesting with cash my way)
