I love it! You might like my Triumph Gallery. Check it out:

Check out my Chopper Galleries

Give my thread a bump if you want me to keep updating it. Otherwise I'll think no one is interested.

In my never humble opinion I think Brit bikes are some of the coolest ever made. Before I got my 1200 XLC I was actually planning to fly to the North East and pick one up and ride it back to the West Coast. For some reason very few of them made it this far West. I think the East coasters grabbed them all up. The only thing that stopped me from doing it was fear of breaking down and not being able to get parts.

That could be but they aren't listing them for sale on ebay. I do remember seeing ONE in the auto trader when I lived in San Diego. I think there is a lot more interest in the Brit bikes than people realize. My Brit gallery gets almost 10 times the number of views as the others.

yes, there is a huge burst in prices for Old british bikes at the auctions whilte the old harely's have come down.

I guess everyone's sick of harleys since they got way too popular. don't get me wrong, if i had the luck for a cheap pan head or knuckle/ or shovel, i'd build it. but i wanted something different and unique, a Norton is about as unique as you can get and not suffer too much power loss or that nice deep long stroke sound.

Nice ride slammed, I like your highway pegs. My 'ol 74 850 Commando NEVER looked that good. I traded it off for a 58 Matchless twin so can't say I've pined over no longer owning it. None of my limeys ever rode like my Norton. Tell me about your frame. (I'm considering puttin my '57 Matchless into a rigid)

ShefBoiRD, making your Matchless into a rigid is fairly easy. Check out my gallery and look at mine. I got rid of the upper portion of the rear frame (springs, etc.) and dropped some tubing to the swing arm.

Also note that this thread died August 16th 2004. SlamNort hasn't posted since, which means he probably doesn't visit much anymore.

Thanks a lot rastoy, I see what you did - I'll give that a try. (I'll start a (re-)build log for it prolly after I finish my current build.

cbrunson: thanks for the heads up - BTW that's the LMAOest animated gif I've seen in a while
