I see the crowdfunding effort seems to have been stopped?
Is it because of the pension fund issue?
There seems to be a lot of bad publicity around undelivered bikes lately
Nope it seems a generous benefactor has come along with a truck load of readies and so no need for crowdfunding. All I know is it aint me.
Excellent news, did the guy have a red suit and drive a sleigh, I've always believed in Santa
Why not do both, benefactor and crowdfund, then all could have won. The latest news shows just what tosh the statement was that was issued last month with the 650's pictured in Scotland.
Where in Scotland were the 650's pictured? I've had no reports of strange Nortons being spotted, maybe they had stealth fairings on whilst travelling and only morphed into Nortons at a standstill? Ain't technology fantastic these days! If you'd told me this a few years ago I would have thought you were making it up.
We have a meeting this Thursday, can the pilots of these bikes bring them along for us to marvel at? (Be careful though, it's minus 5 degrees C at the moment )
My 650 Norton is all set and ready for making Christmas deliveries. And the chances are those deliveries will be made without any need to deviate for repairs, upgrades or modifications. As can be seen in the photograph, the bike just need a suitably dressed mature pilot with lots of yo in his ho! ho! Note that an escort for sky travel has been provided.
For those people interested in helping charities at this time of year. The Surrey Branch is once again helping out with the Golden Lion Charity based near Gatwick Airport. See the attached info sheet if you can also help in some way.
I would put money on it being a Chinese business man, it makes sense that they have the dough and want the Norton name . Any one got any more suggestions?.
Actually I believe it was a German who disappeared when he realised what he was getting into, or maybe I'm misinformed? Anyhow I expect this post to disappear soon
They have already exhibited their Norton Atlas at the Chinese motorcycle show with Norton on the tank deliveries will be January.
I believe not, otherwise there would have been the usual big twitter / instagram / press announcement. Not only that, how would it have impacted Firodia and his tie in.
