For Sale - Norton SOHC Online Catalog

This is my online catalog, offering a range of parts I can supply for Norton SOHC engines, both for International and early SOHC Manx. I can also offer parts for Amal TT carburettors, BTH KD1 racing magnetos and am expanding my catalog all the time to include new products related to the restoration of Nortons and competition motorcycles.

Asking for Information and Placing an Order:

If you require more information or there is something in particular you are looking for (either for a SOHC Norton or a british competition bike), please email me at paul.norman@racingvincent.co.uk

Update August 2008 : My day job now entails me working away for much of the week. Because of this it is often not possible for me to answer my email until the following weekend. Please accept my apologies but bear this in mind when emailing me for information or orders - I will get back to you as quickly as possible

Alternatively, you can email me your order on the attached Excel spreadsheet Order Form: Parts Order Form (please quote the Norton Part or plate number for new Norton parts)

Prices and Payment :
All prices quoted are in GBP Sterling, but as I am not VAT registered this is the price you pay, there is no VAT to add. (however, this price applies for all orders - both UK and non-UK)
At present I accept Personal Cheques and PayPal and try to deliver within 2 days of payment being received

Post and Packing :
I am happy to post, and try to keep this as close to cost as possible, dependent on weight.
Once you have emailed me with your order I will confirm the delivery cost before final confirmation (I advise that all orders are insured to ensure delivery - from past experience!).

Returns Policy :
Many of the items shown below I have had made in small batch's by high quality engineering companies, or come from trusted manufacturers and suppliers. You may find some cheaper reproduction parts elsewhere, but everything I offer I try to ensure will be of the highest possible quality. Because of this I offer a full money back guarantee if you are not satisfied (within 10 days of purchase)

Update August 2008:
I have tried as much as possible to maintain prices, but the cost of metal (and Stainless Steel particularly) has risen alarmingly in the last year. Because of this there have been some items I have been forced to increase the price for. I will try to keep these increases to a minimum, but hope you will understand that this is only a reflection of the inreased cost of production

Vertical Shaft Top or Bottom Bearing

- Unfortunately the original type Twin row self centering bronze caged ball bearing is now obsolete and no longer available.
I am able to supply the single row (non self centering) variety. These type are the common replacement and in operation work just as well.

- They do not self-centre like the originals, which might make cambox fitting more fiddly, but a big advantage is that they won't shed balls like the originals do!

- September 2008: I have been approached recently by both friends and customers asking about these bearings. In truth I have found one dealer who is holding a small stock of the original bearings - but is asking a ridculous price for them. If you would really like an original twin row type, then email me but expect to payapprox £80 for it

    Note - Bearing Information:
Many of these bearings are obsolete and becoming increasingly difficult to find. In a couple of recent cases I have been supplied with chinese alternatives which I have refused to stock and had to send back. I will only stock bearings of high quality from known suppliers - i.e. RHP, SKF etc

Unfortunately this has meant prices increases in some cases as those suppliers holding rare bearings are aware they have the last ones available

Main Bearing - Timing Side Twin Ball Bearing : Model 30M/40M (Manx)


Twin row caged ball bearing. Fitted to Model 30M/40M (Manx) SOHC engines. This bearing is now obsolete and unobtainable in original '3 spot' specification with bronze cage.
I can offer two similar alternatives:

— Modern NSK (originally Hoffman) '3 spot' version, now manufactured using nylon cage. Although high quality, great care must be taken with these when fitting and soldering bearing plate over them, to ensure the cage is not melted.

— I also have a very limited supply of original R&M non-'3 spot' bearings with bronze cages. Although these bearings do not have the slightly looser tolerence of a 3-spot bearing, they are probably the last steel caged version available. When they are gone their gone!

Rather than trying to clean up the horrible old gashed ones in your engine - why not fit new ones!

They can also be used on roadgoing bikes, if you want a more highly tuned engine, however they are less likely to give good slow running charateristics

Note : I normally keep at least one bigend in stock, for immediate delivery, but if fitting is required please contact me for further details

They are the correct transfers for the models described, and they are the ones I use myself
All Transfers
Gardengate Tank
Gardengate tank restored by myself using these transfers




TRN/01




N/A


Norton Main Tank Transfer - Black (All models 1920's - 1950's)

-
This is the standard 'Norton' motif in black (with Reg'd Trade Mark in small lettering underneath) fitted to almost all painted/line Norton petrol tanks, from the 1930's - 1950's.
- I have used the same transfer on my Rigid, Gardengate and Featherbed cammy Nortons, as well as ES2's
- Two required per tank (duhh!), but you may want to consider buying at least one more. I have been fitting these for years and still sometimes find that I screw one up when fitting. They dont always slide easy, once placed in position and the moisture has been removed from them







£3.25 each

 





TRN/02




N/A


Norton Top Tank Transfer - Gold

-
Small but very smart Norton transfer that is placed on the top of the Norton tanks. Used on SOHC and pushrod tanks.
- On SOHC tanks, particularly those with chinpads I find they look better placed ahead of the filler cap, but on pushrod tanks and SOHC without the chinpad they can be placed behind the filler cap





£2.50 each





TRN/03




N/A


Norton Rear Mudguard Transfer - Gold

-
Slightly larger than the tank top transfer, this rear mudguard transfer adds the final touch to your restoration.
- Not entirely sure when/to these were fitted, but I have them on both my 1930's bikes and also on my 1950's DOHC Manx and they look very nice on both





£2.50 each




TRN/04



N/A


Norton Chaincase Transfer - Gold

-
Fitted to most roadgoing Norton motorcycles from the 1930's to the 1960's, wherever the pressed steel Norton primary chain oilbath was used




£2.50 each





TRN/05




N/A


Norton Steering Head - Gold and Blue

-
I believe these were fitted mainly to very early Nortons (particularly flat-tank bikes) so are not strictly correct for SOHC Nortons, however, on occasion I have fitted them anyway, as they look so pretty and only the real purist would object!
- Fitted to the front of the frame headstock





£4.50 each





TRN/06




N/A


Norton Sidecar and Steering Head? - Gold and Red

-
These transfers have to be one of the rarest ever fitted, I believe they were originally fitted to the side door of the Norton Sidecar of the 1920's, although they may also have been fitted to the frame headstock
- Again, a nice transfer to add to your SOHC Headstock if you are not a purist!
- Unlike the other transfers, these are not waterslide, but instructions are included

- Lovely quality chromed chamber cap to fit all 10TT Amal Carburetters
-The type shown here is the type originally fitted to post-war TT carburettors, where the ring was secured using the retainer spring shown below (4/307)

    Various SOHC Engine Plates now in stock

I am now able to supply Norton Engine plates, for a variety of Norton Rigid/Big Plunger/Gardengate, and occasionally Featherbed SOHC/DOHC models.
The plates in most cases are taken from original patterns (unless otherwise stated) and are manufactured to a very close tolerence to the original, using modern laser cutting and jigs where necessary
Engine Plate Pre-Fitting Service
As many Norton enthusiast know, the Norton works were never that exact on their frame lugs, and it is extremely rare to find two sets of similar plates exactly the same! Because of this, for many of the plate types - I can offer a completed set with all holes drilled, or a set with the final frame locating hole still left for you to drill.
However, if you prefer, I will also send you both sets and allow you to test them against your bike before making the final decision. Obviously, my provisio against this service is that I get the other set sent back undamaged and that you are happy to pay the additional postage charge in both directions (at cost)

  4c. Alloy Wheel Rims and Spokes     
    I am often building wheels for my own bikes, and always use alloy flanged rims for competition bikes, so thought I should start offering these on the catalog as well.

Unfortunately it has not been possible to obtain the original fitment Dunlop or Borrani alloy rims (yes, I am told Borrani were also original equipment in some years) for many years now, but good quality Akront rims are still available, and these are virtually indistinguishable from original, and still look very good.
Akront themselves recently went into liquidation, and were taken over by another company, but the rims are still being made and look just as good as they did before. I always use these rims myself, and the ones I supply have the correct offset for Norton SOHC conical front hubs and cotton reel rear hubs. If you have a different hub in mind, give me details and I should be able to supply.

A quick note on wheel rim sizes and tyres available:
Norton SOHC bikes in the 1930's were originally fitted with 21 inch front rims (WM1 width) and 20 inch (WM2 width) rear rims. 19 inch (WM2 width) rear rims were specified for the OHV/SV models.
Front Wheel : If you are using your bike for serious modern competition I would recommend 19 inch WM2rims at the front (or even 18 inch), as the choice of modern competition rubber is better, and they give a slightly wider 'footprint'. If however, you want a more original rim, then use 21 inch WM1 rims. It is not widely known, but as well as the standard 21" Avon Roadrunner in normal compound, it is now possible to obtain the same time in a racing (super soft) compound. I use this tyre myself and it seems pretty good, although the pattern seems a bit outdated now for serious stuff.
Rear Wheel: I gather the 20 inch WM2 is still available, but truthfully, I have never used it, as the tyres in this size are almost impossible to get hold of, and certainly not in a good racing compound.
I always build my Norton's using a WM2 19 inch rim, as these look almost idistinguishable from 20 inch and there is still plenty of tyre choice available. For competition work I use the 19 inch Avon GP in a racing compound , which works very well and is reasonably priced

Let me know if you require more information, and I will try to help

Period Style Racing Number Plates


- These plates have the correct distinctive oval shape and bevelled lip as fitted to competition bikes manufactured from the 1930's to the 1950's
-Supplied in a variety of colours, they are made in plastic, but once fitted are indistinguishable from the original aluminum plates and have the advantage that they do not resonate and scratch paint like the steel version - oh, and they are much cheaper!
- Although they can of course be painted, they have a nice semi-gloss finish and look good as-is, which means changing the numbers and removing scrutineering tabs does not remove paint

Spare Parts Catalogs, Brochures and Workshop Guides

- This section includes a selection of reproduction spare parts catalogs and guides to cover the definitive years in the lifespan of the Norton single history.
- These catalogs and brochures are a terrific source of information to the serious restorer, as they help identify the correct specification for any given year. They are also useful for identifying the small differences between different model types for the same year (for instance, the subtle differences between the Norton CS1 and International models in the 1930's).

- Latest Update December 2007: I am now pleased to be able to offer reproduction Norton sales catalogs in colour. These facsimiles are not cheap copies, but are as close to the orignal brochure as possible, which means even replicating the thickness and quality of the original paper and card covers.
- Pre-war sales brochures are now extremely rare and do not often become available. This is a real shame, because as well as being invaluable to the restorer - as it clearly shows the factory specification for any year/model combination, I think they are also wonderfully indicative of that period of time.
- Each sales catalog comprises two main sections, the first section gives a summary of the various competition successes from the previous year (including some interesting - if grainy! photographs), while the second part of the catalog has a high quality line drawing for each of that year's models
- Sales catalogs from the 1930's (commonly called 'The Roadholder') were normally produced in bi-colour, dependent on year, i.e. 1934 - blue/black, 1936 - Red/Black, 1939 - green/black etc. Post war, the format changed and they went to full colour. I am looking to produce facsimile brochures from both era's

- Footnote: Although these copies are not cheap, the price reflects the very high cost of obtaining suitable originals, the considerable time preparing them (i.e removing stains etc and enhancing the very faint text on some originals) and the many waste samples that get created to setup each facsimile.
Added to this setup cost, I use only the best materials and ink.
The only part of the 1930's catalogs I struggle to replicate is the intensity of the cover text colour (i.e the words 'The Roadholder'),against the black card cover, which I am told would only be possible using Silk Screening or similar

Norton 1939 'The Roadholder' Sales Catalog - Colour Facsimile

- This is a high quality facsimile of the 1939 edition of 'The Roadholder' sales catalog. It includes a summary of the previous years sporting achievements, and a line drawing of every model in that years range, including all the camshaft models and a nice picture of the pre-war Trials model
- For 1939 the colour was green/black, which is very indicative of that Art Deco 1930's period
- Includes a nice line drawing of the Racing International (i.e. SOHC Manx), which was fitted with the later type Gardgengate frame for the first year (the previous years catalog showed the very rare 'Big Plunger' frame)

Norton 1934 Spare Parts List : All Single Cylinder Models - A4 (large) Facsimile

- If you are familiar with the Norton spare parts catalogs of the 1930's you will know they are of a very different format to the later 'exploded diagrams' used by Norton's post war (and most other manufacturers as well). The pre-war format consisted of a 'photograph like' picture of each individual item, many of these pictures being so small and badly printed that they are very difficult to view. The original size for these catalogs was A5 format.

- Because of this difficulty to view clearly the catalog in its original format, I have reproduced this pre-war catalog in a much clearer and easier to view A4 size, which is considerably larger than the orginal. Added to this, I have made some effort to enhance the clarity of the items so I think they are of more use to the restorer now. However, the cover, layout and content are exactly as per original
- They are still facsimiles, so the quality is not quite perfect, but I think
they are pretty reasonable!

  6.a. T-Shirts
I go to a number of bike shows, but have noticed there are very few T-Shirts or other items of clothing covering early Norton's or the SOHC range. I think this is a great shame so have decided to rectify this by having some of my own designs produced, I hope you like them.

As with all my products, I have strived to enusre they are manufactured to the highest standard and only best quality materials are used - in the case of T-shirts this means using Fruit of The Loom's Premium quality shirts, not cheaper variants, so they should last a long time as well.
They are machine washable and should be available in all common sizes (see the chart at the bottom of this section for size details)

If you have a particular design you think would look good, email me with details, and it may be the next design I get manufactured!

Cleaning Your Pride and Joy(s)

- I must confess that until recently, as well as the bikes, I have also owned a couple of nice 'enthusiasts' cars, the last one being a realisation of a long term dream - a Porsche 911 (993 Model), last of the air cooled 911's.
- It was while owning this vehicle, and having a good friend far more acquainted with the car people than myself, that I found out about the wonders of Carnauba Wax polish.
- My friend was constantly ranting on to me about the fantastic finish you could achieve on paintwork when using these polish's (the best known makes being Zymol and Swissol), until eventually I was persuaded to try some myself.
- So I can confirm, not only do they give a beautiful finish when applied properly, they last far longer than other cheaper wax finishes and provide a protective coat that seems easier to keep clean
- Anyway, of the two best known makers of these Carnauba waxes - Zymol and Swissol, neither are cheap by any stretch of the imagination (the most expensive grades are well in excess of £1000 a tub!). However, about a year ago I was fortunate to find a supplier of a fantastic American alternative made with 100% Yellow Carnauba paste wax, that looks to give exactly the same hight quality finish as the Zymol I was previously using, at a fraction of the price. Not only is the wax just as easy and pleasurable to apply, but it buff's off in the same easy manner, leaving a wonderful deep lustre. As a final bonus, the amount of wax in each tin is far more than the equivelant tub of Zymol.

- So if like me, on occasion you can't help yourself, and go over the bike with a cleaning rag, then can I suggest giving this vey high quality wax a try, I promise you wont be disappointed! I can also supply sponge applicators to make the job easier, as well as the best polishing cloths I have ever tried.

By the way, Not only do I use wax on petrol tanks and the main tinware, I also find it a good protector on the frame and really anywhere where there is paintwork. I also find it makes the bike easier to clean after an event
