    I saw those last couple of bikes on the kneeslider and just scrolled right past it cause they would kinda fugly concept bikes. The 961 Commando looks nice but still a little pricey at 30k from what I read.

    The Manx Norton was, is and always will be the perfect motorcycle. I don't care if Rossi's Yamaha make a gazillion HP and goes well over 200 mph. Its a like being stood in front of a Spitfire and an F14 and told to pick one. The F14 can do everything better than an Spitfire but your heart knows what one you're going to choose.


    This is as close as I got to heaven.

    With Molnar, Summerfield and others making engines and complete machines why would Norton try to remake the Manx in such small market? If you want to go all out you can a Manx frame in Titanium from Bakker Frambou in Holland. Only 15,000 euros but that includes a magnesium swing arm.

    Yes it was mine. The Dublin bit is a longer story. I spent a good few years over there racing etc. and the Norton was part of it. The Manx came from England and is still over there with a friend.

    Lucky dog indeed. The enigne is alive and well in Dublin. I broke it at at a time when parts weren't available and the parts that were available I couldn't afford. A friend now has the engine and the rest is here in California and doing well.
