Norton Featherbed Cafe Racer (Not Quite Complete)


Up on eBay right now is this Norton Featherbed cafe racer. Or should I say partially completed cafe racer. Most of the major bits are there, but a few things are missing. First, the seller does not have carbs installed, but has a set of Amal 930 carbs that will be thrown in for an extra $200. And then you will need to find some kind mufflers to put on there. The motor is a 1969 Atlas 750 that has supposedly been modded, and the Featherbed frame is a 1962 600SS.

If you can live with the caveats listed here and in the seller’s listing, this might be a great bike that will really turn heads once it is completed. Just go into the purchase with eyes open expecting to have to do a bit of work. Bidding is currently at about $3K with just over 4 days left…
