Norton Model 30 Inter
|Model:||Model 30 International (plunger)|
Rarely do we find such an unmolested well preserved road racing machine with the same frame, engine, gearbox and registration number after all these years. This particular Model 30, fitted with the optional plunger rear suspension, left the factory on 25th May 1939 for the Southampton Dealer; Alec Bennett; and was registered CTR 891 on 3rd June 1939. The original RF60 Log Book confirms all this, as do the factory records extracted by the Norton Owners Club and these and other documents on file provide the provenance often sought by serious collectors and appreciated by all. There are only four former keepers recorded on the V5C Registration Document. The engine has been rebuilt very recently by Barry Stickland and as you can hear sounds as sweet as they come. Many original features survive like the alloy levers and mudguards. Relatively new replacement parts include the chrome wheel rims, which would originally have had black and red painted centres. The oil tank is a race replica, an original tank is with it, as is a more traditional fishtail exhaust. These pictures are a few years old now and the bike will be returning to stock in even better condition than seen here so watch this space for new pictures and video but if you're interested please do get in touch as it may sell before it arrives.
