ED FOX PHOTO


Ed Fox sent one of his test shots from the SFMC 'Garage' shoot.... now I'm kind of glad I couldn't take photos with my little Canon digital Elph! The lighting accentuates the 'landscape' of the Norton, and if you click on the photo, you can read the engine number on the crankcase...and the bike is shockingly clean for not having been washed since the Legends show in '06 (yes, it was ridden since then).
My project for this winter is to remove the wheels and rebuild them using the period-correct 21" rims front and rear, which of course means new fenders and stays...but at least the bike won't bottom out so easily when I push it into the truck. It will also lighten the 'feel' when riding.

Hiya Paul. Now THAT is my dream Sunbeam. The early longstrokes with the dummy rim brakes look so lithe and purposeful. If only I could find one, and find the cash to purchase it!

cheers
