The field of motorcycling is going through a renaissance today. New makers, resurrected historic names, and current manufacturers are creating some really exciting bikes. I thoroughly enjoy the sport and want to help those interested in keeping up with what's new. Make sure and go to page four to view local & regional events.
I have made a few notes of my own but have also placed some of the best links to motorcycle "news" resources:
The Norton is another name which seems to return over and over again! Read below:
The original Norton motorcycle was built from 1902 till 1975. Financial problems have led to the bike's demise several times. From 1902 till 1953 the name stood on it's own, then was sold to AMC (Associated Motorcycles), a British group. AMC also marketed AJS, Matchless and several other less known brands. AMC became Norton-Villiars, then Norton-Villiars-Triumph, then was gone. In the late 1980's the name returned as a Wankel engined bike but was not a big success. In 1999 Kenny Dreer, an American, bought the rights to the name and developed a beautiful version of the Commando. Note the picture below. He never produced a production bike but built numerous vintage copies. Half a decade ago a British business man purchased back the name and has continued the development of the bike and is actually selling a few, mostly in Europe. Stuart Garner first offered the bike for sale in 2010. Three models are to be offered with the same 961cc twin. There will be the Commando, the Commando Sport, and the Commando Cafe Racer. From what I can guess, the US price is in the $17,000 to $19,000 range. I have seen only one and was told by a good source that fewer than a dozen have been sent to our shores.
My new book ashould be out by July 2021. It covers the motorcycles which have been most important to the history nof the sport. Go to Amizon and check it out, make sure and use Mark H. Bayer (don't leave out the "H." If it doesn't come up just try again in a week or so, the book is done, it is just going through the publishing downloading and printing.
