Article Description: 1937 500cc Norton International Build

Written 2010/2011: This short series of articles cover the engine build of a 1937 500cc iron engined Norton International engine that I carried out in 2010-2011. The engine is to go in a roadgoing rigid Norton International I am building which will be almost starndard specification, other than the frame is in Racing International specification. As at this time of writing (Spring 2013) the engine is complete and the bike is in large lumps. I am in the process of building the wheels and will shortly start a light renovation of the gearbox before trial assembling and then painting the chassis.

Please Note: Many of these articles were originally written when the web site design was in a different format. The individual articles should open in a new window, but not all of the original links on that article page may work any more. Please bear this in mind, and return to this page by closing the article window . . . but you never know, you might get to a link that still works but cannot be accessed from the main website any more - a bit like a lucky dip!
