My 1957 600cc Dominator 99 is rapidly approaching it's complete rebuild following a con rod thro' the crankcase on September 12th 1970. (I'm not known for rushing)

It will be far from concourse but I have tried to keep it as standard as possible and the majority is original.

What I'm trying to find out is the original transfers which it would have. I know of the 'Max oil level' and Primary chain case transfers but would like the correct ones for the rear mudguard and if there would be a 'Made in England' (and whether script or block text and where it was on the bike)

There may have been others but my memory is fading.

Anyone with an original bike or photo's please help.

Waiting in anticipation,

Dick Hudson

Hi Dick

 

Mine is a 1959 model 99 rebuilt some time ago to an excellent standard by an individual in Cardiff and I believe a member who has a number of current Norton etc. I believe he would have restored bike as standard given its great condition.

I have the following from a visit to my garage.

Model 99 transfer centred on rear mudguard just before extension for rear number plate and brake light

Registered design number transfer on frame just behind battery box nearside set vertically

Norton oil bath transfer on primary chain case

Road holder metal badges on each of front forks left and right of headlight and just below on front

Norton patent numbers on brass badge nearside below barrels

Minimum oil level transfer 

Didn't spot any others though it may have had a dealer transfer and if you know the dealer have found a site Decal transfers which has a whole host of dealer transfers - this reminds me to sort myself and track through the system the original dealer though some are very impressive so a debate with originality here.

Trust helps.

Hugh

Thanks for this but couldn't find dealer transfer but as you say excellent looking manufacturer decals like Norton RE etc. I'll check re dealers when they are back from hols as need a Whitakers Blackpool dealer transfer for the 57 Enfield.

Hugh

Many thanks Mark, Hugh and Ian, most helpful and I have already checked the two sites.

I hadn't thought of a dealer's sticker so have just dug out the old buff logbook but no mention of a dealer at all. The first owner in January 1957 owned it for 2 years then 2 others before I bought it in June 62.

Hugh, is there any chance of a photo of the rear mudguard and the one behind the battery box when you have time please. There are several for the rear mudguard and I haven't seen the battery box one before, just so that I can see if the lettering is vertically upwards or downwards.

Regards to all

Dick

Will do my best re photos as not the most technophob. Just tried one and too large for site at 5.2mb. Send me an email at hughcoombs@yahoo.co.uk and should be easier.

In terms of dealer I found the Enfield from the RE Club factory records. I believe the Norton records would show the same thing.

Hello your max oil level was on the oil tank, And Not the Primary chain case  it had a oil bath sticker  and you need Lucas Primary chain case oil  witch cools and will not let the clutch slip,  this is proper stuff made for early Harley Davidson's like pan heads and knuckle heads with chain drive transmission just like our Norton's    these where great iconic motorcycles  For our Norton's too compete with  just think on the Competition was good for the Development of our Norton motorcycles  and there racing history    and Norton twins  played a big part in this   Built in the light of experience  , Yours   Anna J
