New member and I am not even 100% sure of the vintage of this thing...
Bought the Norco while doing a 10,000km rebuild of my 06 Cannondale Prophet so I would have a good cheap second dirt bike to keep sane and away from the skinny tyres. What I know of the bike is that it has an 853 main triangle, is stamped “TEAM ISSUE” on the BB shell and it is crazy fun to ride!
The Dorco as it has grown to be known as has been in my garage for around a year, yet to race it but I would probably reserve it for short course XC as the longest Enduro ride I have done on it to date is 110km of fire trails in the hills around Brisbane and that hurt.
Anywho, as I said. Not sure of exact vintage etc but I like it and will one day spec it up NOS style and maybe even repaint but for now I’ll keep on fanging it about scaring the beejebus out of my mates.
