Norton Dominator 88
|Condition:||Very good (4)|
Really easy to live with. Starts first prod, goes and handles really well, looks lovely and everything works as it should. A fun bike to ride and it's a Featherbed framed Norton twin with that cool cafe racer style whilst retaining standard flat bars and footrests. Paintwork is a homemade rattle-can job but it looks nice and it's been put together well enough. Not matching numbers but it's the correct engine dating from 1955 in a 1958 frame and all the numbers are factory stamps. Norton Owners Club dating certificates on file confirm the provenance of both engine and frame and it's registered on a correct for 1958 age-related number. This bike has spent some time at Classic Bike Workshop for recommissioning and re-engineering work which has resulted in a pretty oil-tight engine now running smoothly and quietly with a new clutch just fitted. There is an anti-wet sumping tap fitted and it should be noted that the speedometer is a modern replica unit. Excellent quality stainless front rim and spokes fitted, looks like the original rim on the rear. Cool bike for the price.
