We make an exact copy of the pressed-steel magneto A/R and air levers as used on all long-stroke Manx Nortons. It clamps onto the handlebar. High quality chrome finish. K McI

I am checking the parts listed for the garden gate models, I have a 1947 500 and am looking a few parts that I can see listed but can you clarify the air lever - is this a pressed steel lever with chrome finish? what about advance/retard?

I have a 1960 Manx Norton M30 I ride on the road. It has a Newby belt drive and clutch, coil valve springs, and a Kabota tractor alternator hidden in the primary. Castor based oil is illegal here, and I am down to my last pint. Alternatives?

Is this a manx? - (read 1595896 times) Reply
I am starting to restore a old Norton I have had for 37years, and have a question about the frame number. This is what I have vertical line of numbers 53319 I am assuming serial number, then horizontal line starts J1 and it is getting hard to read the rest of the model number, Is there any way to tell from just the serial number??? The right upper frame tube has a indent that looks like it is for the bevel drive of a long stoke motor. is the Manx the only bike to have this indent? the upper rear transmission mount is not welded to the frame( normal for a 54). Being a J make it a 1954 and the serial number agree with that, It seems it could be a J11M2 M40 Manx or a J122 dominator 88 (why would a dominator need the indent?). I just do not want to start and find out later that it was a Manx, I might take a different direction rather than build it back as a Triton/Weslake

Hi Ken 1 9/16 should this have been 1 5/16 for the short strokes? Best Regards Mark
