Old???? Never too old......... :argue:
Myself, early 70's, and John Gregory (the builder & owner of the T.C.Christanson ridden "Hogslayer" double Norton engined fuel bike), 80, have ridden neumorous 300 and 400 mile days on these Buells, in the last few years.  :wink:

john,
 a friend that builds the sidewinder V-8 cycles just lent me HOGSLAYER c.d.
watched it last night. very well done and cool. those guys did party..lol.
also did some fantastic things.
 I did some Norton work in the 60's.  did not find them to be very reliable. the tape sure did change my mind on them.
they were pretty bikes.

 I think they stayed non unit is what killed them off when triumph and bsa went unit.

when T.C. blew up a police station....news called it a prank...lol
I betting they don't sell those "chemistry" sets anymore.
these times would be terr attack and in prison forever.
keep riding and rocking
