Description: The Speedster was built in Argentina. Raced in hill climbs and dirt tracks in Argentina during the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's. The car arrived in California in 1988. As I understand, I am the 3rd owner of this car. I have raced the Speedster in the local Murrieta Model A hill climbs and the Antique National Drag Races in Fontana. Winner of several Best of Show awards. Always garaged. New starter, water pump, coil & distributor, clutch & pressure plate, new wiring with halogen headlights. Much TLC. Includes a car trailer with electric winch. Runs better than new !

Description: My Norton is a 1972 Combat. I am the 3rd owner of this motorcycle. The original owner tried to restore it but it was over his head. Most of the work was done at British Marketing including a complete engine rebuild with Superblend Bearings. The original owner developed cancer and sold the bike to his neighbor, The bike was much faster than he was and it scared him. He put it up for sale and I bought it from him. I have all the receipts, over $8000 worth. The bike has always been stored either in my garage or barn. The bike came with the fiberglass gas tank. Because it was dissolving in the shitty gas we have, the carbs became seized up. The red tank shown in the pictures is a steel tank from a 1973 Roadster. It has a RITA electronic ignition. The bike needs (2) New Carbs, a battery and a new kickstart lever. The clutch has always been hard to operate and I think that the clutch plates were improperly assembled. This motorcycle has only 599 miles on it since complete rebuild. It runs like a raped ape and will run away from a stock Commando.
