I have owned this Norton since October 1974 when I bought it for myself for carrier qualifying on the USS Lexington. This Norton was my ride to and from the bases while in the Navy. I rebuilt it from ground up in late 90’s and early 2000’s. I sent the engine to Britech New England for a perfect rebuild. Britech rebuilt motor using all new parts. It has been ridden very little since. Always stored and covered in house or conditioned garage.

This 1973 Norton 750 is a fun ride, comfortable and smooth.

Tach and Speedometer were rebuilt in 2004 keeping original miles 27,997 miles now, Red paint on fiberglass tank and side covers.  All metal is in excellent condition, frame powder coated, new stainless steel pipes and pea shooters – not installed but included, mechanically excellent with no known issues. Front Tire: 3.25 – 19, Rear Tire: 4.10 – 19. The original tail light and many extra parts are included - $12,995 OBO. Thanks, Tom - 817 751 4635
