Hello The One You forgot about A Norton Manxman 650twin The First Norton Motorcycle with a All new restyled Engine These Iconic Motorcycles Were Built For Export Only And they were very special indeed ,the one thing you do not know much about them this is self evident These Machine were Built one year before the 650SS And 650 De-lux And 650 Standard They were Built from November 7th 1960 to September 1961 And there was only 654 ever built one is in the Falkland isles 99 went Australia 25 to Sweden , the rest went too the USA we do know there are 19 still in there original wooden boxes tucked a way in a warehouse in New Jersey ,When these come to light it anyones guess, there was 6 of these machines in Hollywood Movies and are still owned by movie stars , Mt one I found through a Friend it was not in a good state and needed a lot of work witch I have carried out my self with very little farmed out, the help I have had was from Quality Chrome They did What I needed to do, and paintwork is my own and so is the engine and gear box rebuilds the wheel have been rebuilt by me, and the bike has been rebuilt by me some small parts I still have to find in the carb department like the special inlet sleeves that was fitted between the carburettors and the inlet spacers with out these items I cannot fit the twin Carburetters as the engine will not run right with out them , its still on the single carburettor it came with ! and runs Ok with this for now yours Anna J Dixon A female Restorer lady rider
