A little help

This question comes from Bruce in Australia.


There is a rumour amongst some Aussie Norton enthusiasts that the Norton Company campained some rigid framed 500cc twin Nortons at Daytona sometime between 1949 & 1953.

Is this supported by any records that you guys might have?

Hey Trumpet fans dig this little bob job. I'm liking the head light treatment as well as the proper tail light.
