Hi all, Has anyone seen or purchased one of the brand new series A singles or twins as advertised in the Old Bike Mart by The Norvin Centre? Am curious as how they compare with the real deal.

I expect the clutches will work this time round
If only there were enough people still racing in the pre war class we could go back to Cadwell and win this time to honor Ginger Woods..
unfortunately we are too late, last time I looked there were only 2, the rest seem to be 'show only'

I tried to see if they had a website, but couldn't find any. Does anyone have a link?

How much are they? I know of several people who may have been involved in the manufacture of these machines. Mainly Australian based unless this is another venture.
When I first heard of it the proposed pricing was somewhat over $100,000 each.

Hi there Alyn, Actually 2 of, that i know about, of a total of 6 or 7 complete bikes and 3 engines in various build varieties.....and not necessarilly "ALL" Series A either......that will make some of you scratch your heads.....Try a series A bottom end with a post war top end twin......Not unlike the prewar speedway engine, but as a twin not the 500 single......All you series A chaps will all be chomping at the bit to see one of these......Greg.

Greg, speedway engine was post war (think about it) :) So, what are the possibilities of a new "hot" cam for my "A"? My bike had TT forks back in 1959 but disappeared sometime in the '60s, wouldn't mind another set....

Hi again Alyn, Well it sounds like you need to speak to Neal Videan......Not sure what profile of cams they have chosen for the twins, and i think the forks are the Webb pattern ones made by....is it Ray Daniels in the UK....Were the Webb forks the TT version you are talking about..?. Sorry i am not as familiar with the pre war bikes as of yet, but i have a 1939 Comet to carry out a total resto on, when i get around to it........amongst all the others in the queue. Greg.
