2017 NORTON 961 MM FLAT TRACK

KEY FACTS

  • One of only five replicas of the iconic Ron Wood ‘Big Tube’ Norton flat track racer, which won the AMA Ascot Park Half-Mile National event three years in a row in the early 1970s.
  • This modern replica was built by 72 Motorcycles, in collaboration with Norton.
  • It is powered by a 960cc parallel-twin engine, producing 80bhp and 65lb-ft of torque, coupled to a five-speed transmission.
  • It benefits from a comprehensive maintenance history, despite its very low mileage.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This replica features a bespoke frame, developed to hold oil in the spine and utilise the engine as a stressed member.

  • Black ceramic-coated exhaust with a baffle insert.
  • Bespoke fuel tank welded together from four shaped metal sheets and painted with a period-correct Norton logo.
  • LED tail light and indicator strip.
  • One-inch diameter handlebars, as per official flat track race specification, with ISR brake and clutch levers.
  • Accompanying the vehicle are its original service book and a raft of maintenance invoices.

CONDITION

  • No damage to the frame or body.
  • Its original red paintwork is in excellent condition, though one small scratch can be seen to the rear of the seat frame.
  • Its cross-stitched black leather seat features a few light creases.
  • No electrical faults have been detected.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 19 February 2021 at 2,789 miles, which was a first-time pass with no advisories or defects.
