1952 Norton Big 4 – barn find project.
Used regularly, around the farm, up until 1968 when the clutch started to act up. The owner decided to strip the bike with a view of tidying it up but didn’t get very far and gave up after the tractor ran over the exhaust. I’ve been told it’s all there, minus exhaust, but haven’t gone thru the boxes. The engine turns over with good compression and should be fine as the inlet and exhaust have been sealed since it was stripped.
Unfortunately the registration plate isn’t there and the V5 was lost years ago so will need to be re-registered.
