I just ran across this over the holidays.



I have been wondering if I should put a deposit down.



It looks great!

Default Nice bike...

Looks like my kind of bike. Love that old look maybe because I grew up seeing this type of bike. Its one of the reasons I bought a Buell, best of the old and new brought together and I think the new Norton will do the same thing for me.



Now if we can just keep the anti-fun idiots out of these posts with their it's not as fast as a 1,000cc GSX-R, RR, CBR, etc etc.

I've got the ULY Buell. Fun, fun, fun. And it does over the speed limit.

Does yours leak a bit of oil out of the oil filter housing, and drip on the exhaust can?



My XB9SX does and it's just swell. Wouldn't have it any other way.



Wonder if the new Snorton will incorporate an oil leak feature, to keep true to character?

That is totally cool. I went to the Duc dealer yesterday and sat on the new Sport 1000 Sport Classic.



What a gorgeous machine. It's very nicely finished and detailed. No chintzy bits anywhere. The clip ons were way too low though. It's like sitting on a 996.



The GT1000 won't be out until summer. I'll have to wait.

Beautiful bikes, if they can get an infrastructure of dealers and parts going they should do well.

Default Re: With my Triumph...

I just installed a pair of bleed lines off the drainplugs on the crankcase and one of the carbs. with a electro magnetic switches wired in the the neutral light. Whenever I stopped the bike and put it in neutral the switch would close and allow a small amount of oil and gas to dribble out before I cut the ignition. It worked well because when i took off anything left in the drain tube would blow all over the back of the bike, adding to the authenticity.



I was going to add one to the Dyna as well, but Harleys leak so much naturally that I don't need to bother. I'm sure the new Norton has a similar set-up

And considering how limited the bikes are, the price is surprisingly decent. I believe the price for the bikes that they are taking deposits on are 11 and 13 grand.
