New Dry Cell Battery, New Alloy Top Fork Nuts, New Cafe Style Seat, New Wassell Exhaust Pipes, New Exhaust Nuts, and New Stainless Peashooters, Modified 60's Style Lucas Alloy KJ-2 Taillight, New Headlight Shell, Lucas PL-700 Tri-Bar Headlight, Tomaselli Adjustable Clubman Bars with 60's Style Grips, New Ceandess Gas Cap, Alloy BarEnd Mirror, New Instrument Bezels, New Avon RoadRiders Tyres, New Front Brake Line, Chrome Valve Covers,
Colorado Norton Works Hydraulic Clutch, Norvil Rearsets with Reversed Gearshift Lever (1 down, 3 up), New MKIII Kickstart Lever,
All New Rubbers. New Alloy Inspection Plug Covers. 2008 Bonneville T-100 Chrome Shocks, Stainless Seat Knobs, N O R T O N Vanity Plate, a Brand New Paint Job by Brent Budgor in Vermont, "The Vintage Vendor"
I also hooked up a garage door opener inside the headlight bucket to the switch on top of the bucket to open/close the door for covert Commando Road Manoevers.
I kept the Sun Alloy Rims and Stainless Spokes, Fiberglass Front Fender, Grimeca Front Disc Master Cylinder, Norvil Disc Brake upgrade, and Boyer MKIII. See more pictures at:

Just enough to make it a lovely Norton. NEW
by: Craig

I have an identical model (Though mine has a drumbrake frontend) and have done many of the things that you have done. Your machine is a very sweet looking bike. Nicely understated too. I'm glad someone else has done much the same as me!
