A truely handsome sports machine for 1925.

After having finished washing and waxing the Rolls Barnstormers librarian Mzz Jones decided to knock out some more sales garb from the 1925 Edition of The Motorcycles Overseas Annual and Buyers Guide. Her choice this time was too pretty for those of the motorcycle family so amidst screams and tantrums (and that was just the Knobster) we chose plain old Norton. It is 8 pages and as with Matchless there are 4 base models and 2 sidecars. The brochure also outlines Norton competition successes both local and abroad for 1924. Quite interesting reading.

Like a lot of other manufacturers of the time Norton also produced a ‘Colonial’ model. This was a machine that usually had more ground clearance and bigger mudguards (and hopefully a few extra nuts and bolts to hold things together) and for Norton it was the Model 17C Colonial. It was a 490cc sidevalve machine and as stated in the text had €œfound favour with many keen colonial riders€.
