1957 Norton Featherbed Project Bike


I’m going to admit something to you. The older the bike the less I know about it. Something about a law of inverse knowledge. For every year the bike is older than I am, I know something less about it. There you go.

Up for auction on eBay as we speak (write) is this Norton Featherbed motorcycle. Would it make a good cafe racer? Absolutely. Is it ready to be ridden to the Rock Store or Alice’s right now? Absolutely not.

Please, only bid on this bike if you are sure that you have the gumption and where-with-all to stick with a fairly major project compared to the rest of the potential project bikes I usually post here. Too much for me, but maybe just right for you. Have at it…
