    I am relisting this bike in response to the many bidders who contacted me following "no sale" at the established reserve price.  The original ad, updated, follows below: _____________________________________ Selling my beloved Norton - age and arthritis dictate that it is time to give her up.  A "daily rider" - not showroom or museum quality, but a nice, good-looking bike you can happily ride.  It  -IS- a Norton, and it -IS- 40+ years old.  There is a nice patina of age on the mechanicals.  The paint is mostly good, with a couple of minor scuffs on the tank - see photos.  The tank and side panels are the original fiberglas, with appropriate age and stress markings.  The tank has been sealed at some point in the past.  I have used nothing but non-ethanol gasoline since I purchased the bike about ten years ago. The frame has paint nicks from 40 years of use, but no rust - see photos.  Features (and 'year' or 'mileage', if known):  Single Mikuni Conversion -2011; Boyer-Brandsen Ignition; New F&R Dunlop tires  - at ~23000 miles-  About 900 miles on tires; New mufflers -2011; new handbuilt rearsets  - 2011; European Bars; Custom "step" seat; dual LOUD horns, mounted where they can be heard; both center- and side-stands.  The speedometer was replaced with a new unit in 2010; the mileage at the time was 23601.  Since then, I have only ridden about 347 miles - a few miles more than shown in the photo.  So the actual mileage as best I know it is 23948 as of this writing.  This is a USED and VINTAGE motorcycle, sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS, with no other warranty, express or implied.  It -IS- a Norton, and will mark its territory with a few drops of oil immediately after a ride.  Otherwise, it is reasonably "oil-tight."  Study the photographs carefully and bid appropriately.  Pickup and shipping are the responsibility of buyer.  I can deliver to Buyer or transport agent within 25 miles of Idaho Falls, ID, zip code 83401.  Paypal only.  $500 non-refundable Paypal deposit within 48 hours of winning bid.  Balance due within seven calendar days of winning bid via Paypal or Cash-In-Hand to Seller.  Motorcycle, title, and keys will be released to Buyer or buyer's agent upon complete deposit of purchase price in Seller's bank. On Aug-27-13 at 17:12:07 PDT, seller added the following information:  I am relisting this bike in response to the many bidders who contacted me following "no sale" at the established reserve price.  The original ad, updated, follows below: _____________________________________ Selling my beloved Norton - age and arthritis dictate that it is time to give her up.  A "daily rider" - not showroom or museum quality, but a nice, good-looking bike you can happily ride.  "Combat" engine, as were all 72 Interstates.
