They do do good frame.

I'd love a Harris braced swingarm for the R1 but they don't make them anymore, they come up for sale once in a blue moon and fetch huge amounts.

My Dad has a collection of vintage Nortons, keeps him busy (and spending my inheritence) now he is retired. Proper retro stuff like this - 1947 Norton ES2. I remember riding this around our estate, petrol syphoned out my mates moped and no helmet - fantastic noise from the exhaust - 500cc single cylinder!

Beautiful Norton single. 8) Looks totally original even down to the kiddie killer!
Now, where can I find myself a Vincent Black Shadow?

You could always buy a new one, about £60,000
