Probably gone already?
Early style 'garden gate' frame?

maybe not a model 50. Def not a garden gate - it is 1970s in design. Normally I would say electra but the engine and frame doesn't look right for some reason, not that I can see much. The closest thing I can find in my spotters guide is a P11, but the cases look like triumph pre-OIF.

That's mid~late 50's, probably 350 or 500?
Looks more like AMC(Matchless/AJS)

Definitely not a Norton. It looks to have a bolt on rear sprocket and the primary cover would be all wrong for a Norton. The front brake lloks like a Triumph. Norton made those ugly swing arm garden gates but the top tube looks to be a tapered oval. Which again suggest not Norton. I would go with the above.
