Nice example. My fav is the met blue ones but that one isn't too shabby.

Nice Norton, my Fav was the Silver MK111 until I saw one the only thing Norton I liked was the slimline and wideline frame. After that I ended up owning a 71 750 Roadster, since then I have added a few more 750 and 850's to the collection but as yet I still have not owned a MK111

BTW
I like the mods you have done on the 73

Doctor, If you want to use the shot.. you are more than welcome . Let me know and I coudl probably supply a 'non' edited copy .. that is higher resolution ~ let me know ~

Ironically ~ Jerry Doe used the included image back a few years ago for his opening page ~

Hi Kawa

I have NEVER ~ have been a big fan of Black ~ it sends a message of... "I AM BAD ~ !!" "I got attatude..!!

( Really amuses me all these dudes in Australia that wear flat black helmets ~ An Ozzie Summer does get hot so these blokes wear (vogue) flat black .. heat absorbing helmet ~ maybe they figure they can 'hatch a brain' or intellegence !! monkey

(Of course black is handy on the top side of a bike so as to avoid reflection.. perfect example ~ The alloy top of the brake reseveroir is a bugger for reflecting sunlight on a ride!)

Silver is a tad boring...
I chose the red from the Classic Bike front page spread of a Commando Fastback , back in the early 1990s` ( just before Classic Bike mag slowly went down hill to crap ~ )

PS forgot... Xeon Headlight ` 10/10th there~

The fairing I deleted ~ gave it to AnhT160 in Canberra for his T160 ~ but he had an incident with it ~ and is always looking for a base piece if any one has one ~
