1926 NORTON MODEL 25



My 1926 Norton racer, a model 25, raced by the factory until 1930, when it was sold to Jimmy Shaw, a Norton racing employee. A fast bike, with great solid handling, although the engine is a bit of a piledriver!



My 1933 Velocette KTT mkIV racer, seen here on top of Marble Mountain, near Etna CA, basically in the middle of nowhere. Day 3 of a 5-day ride, the bike is slathered in oil as usual, there is just no hope for staying clean on this thing. For better or worse, it's one of my favorite machines ever, so clothes are sacrificed...
