What’s The Site About?
Originally published on the web in early 2003, I wrote this website as a way of sharing with others the long term build of a Vincent Black Lightning replica that I started way back in 1988.
Over a period of 2 years I added many Vincent related articles to the site, but also started to include detail of other work and restorations I was involved in.

In 2004 the Vincent restoration took a back seat as I returned to my other favourite marque and started rebuilding one of the three Norton singles I still own.
This last build, of a pre-war racing Norton, gave me the idea of extending the web site, to give it a more dual purpose identity, with a major section to cover the SOHC Manx Norton (and International) as well as retaining the original format in parallel, for those more interested in the Vincent.

So what you see here is the first major redesign of the site, with a new home page that allows you to navigate through either type, each with it’s own particular identity.
Finally, for good measure I have also included a few useful utilities which you can download, some interesting soundtracks and a couple of smaller sections for Ducati and Royal Enfield enthusiasts.
Also for the first time, I have also included a section detailing spares I have for sale. This may also include some newly manufactured parts for SOHC Manx Norton’s later in 2006.

As before, the main purpose of the website is for me to share my love of building and restoring motorcycles with others. I shall continue to add to the site whenever I get the time, and will continue to welcome any comments or feedback you may have, by emailing me at the following address:

Best Wishes,
Paul Norman.
