Norton Interstate description

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.

I'm on a Goodwood Revival comedown

Tue, 22 Sep 2009

I'm on a massive comedown after a great weekend at Goodwood Revival. The Revival relives the glory days of the 50s and 60s and that's not just marketing hype, almost everyone is dressed in perios clothing, the cars are all from 1948 to 1966 and the effort that goes into setting Goodwood up is incredible, even the burger vans are retro Citroens, the staff are dressed in period clothing and about the only thing not retro was the price of a bacon sarnie; £6.50, ouch! I only planned to go down on Friday, but I had such a good time I headed back on Sunday too.
