Mmmmmmmmmm…

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh…

Beautiful. Nothing much else to say. I might have missed some minor detail that’s out of place and someone will point it out. Don’t care. Here’s some specs and more pictures below. There’s more pics and the seller’s writeup if you are interested in learning more or trying to buy the bike. The auction’s at $8,200 with 2 days left and 17 bidders (reserve HAS been met)…

    The engine features the work of noted tuner Leo Goff including a balanced lower end, 10.1 pistons, Norris SS cam, and gas flowed head resulting in a very fast and smooth 750 Norton motor.
    Alloy Rims
    Steering Damper (Manx type)
    Multi Rate Valve Springs (S&W)
    Special Camshaft (Norris SS hotter than 2S Combat cam)
    Paired Monobloc 1 1/8″ Carbs
    Competition Manual Advance Magneto
    5 Gal Racing Tank
    Domiracer Seat
    The tach and speedo were restored by Nisongers.
    The magneto was rebuilt by Doug Wood.
    The only flaw is some acid stains on the left silencer from a vented battery (since replaced with a sealed unit).
    The bike is very strong and smooth and is ready to ride.

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…
