Norton 16H WD
Price: £6 500 ≈ $8027 ≈ €7398
Item location: Sherborne, Dorset, UK
Seller notes: Excellent mechanical order.
Norton 16H WD (1939 engine/ 1940 frame - they were mixed and matched in wartime) in excellent mechanical condition. I have maintained the bike to a high order and she is absolutely sound but fought the desire to inappropriately restore the paintwork. only dabbling where necessary - as such she looks authentically scruffy in War Department garb! "The Mighty One" comes with panniers (date stamped 1954). WD sump guard. pillion footrests. a spare inner tube and a box of odds and sods.
I have owned the bike for about 7 years. In that time I have:
-Had the MagDyno professionally rewound and overhauled.
-Added an electronic regulator (in original type cover).
-Fitted complete new wiring loom about a month ago.
-Fitted replacement clutch plates.
-Fitted halogen headlight bulb.
-Fitted new brake shoes.
-Blasted and resprayed wheels as were just starting to corrode.
-New tyres and tubes less than 50 miles ago.
Also included in the sale is a Davida pudding helmet. gauntlets and vintage Gold Top boots (size 9).
I'm very sad to see the "Mighty One" go. Reason for sale - new wife and 2 Border Terriers!
Cash on collection please.
I have advertised the bike elsewhere so reserve the right to withdraw from sale.
