The 2017 International Norton Owners Association rally, held in Buena Vista, VA. Organized by the Nation"s Capital Norton Owner's club.Next year the rally will be in Washington state. Anyone up for a trip? These days we tend to focus on technology, speed, handling, and such. But often we seem to lose something that used to be. For me, at least, there is something about certain bikes from the past that causes a visceral response. See what you think.Nice paint, eh. I don't know the vintage, but cool none the less. Norton chassis, Yamaha 650 engine. That's certainly one way to eliminate oil leaks. I believe this was built for the Norton race team. A REAL scrambler. Dual throat Weber is...unusual. How long since you've seen a Honda 55? Our own Mark Finkler's "ride". He even had handcuffs; a real hit with the ladies. What an instrument panel is supposed to look like. Commando MK3 (LH shift!). More sweet paint. Speaks for itself. Pre-Commando, though I can't remember what model/vintage. '53 vintage Gorgeous Matchless '51 Vintage '23 vintage. Probably not too fast, given that it is hauling a sidecar. Limited production Commando Hi-Rider A currently competing race bike. The gobs of curled rubber on the edges of the tires attests to it. And all of us old BMW riders thought we invented the portable hand-pump. Do a search on Kenny Dreer for pictures of some amazing builds Matchless This bike has over 250K miles on it. How many times the top end has been rebuilt...ummm, a couple. From the "rat bike" class of the show. These days, we expect bikes to come from the factory with an oil filter. '68 or '69 Triumph Bonneville. Original owner!
