My fathers' Norvin ran a few demo laps on the course at Daytona (John Long was the rider) with a Vincent from England that was going to be in that weekends "Super Twin" race. Does anyone remember this and do any photos exist? Thanks, Keith

No help with that, but it reminded me of seeing Tom Wegman's Egli and Norvin and Rod Franzius' B Shadow running in Battle of the Twins in '82 or so.

Somer may have the pix you need.

I really don't know, but could have been the late Ian Hamilton. I believe he took his BOTT special to Daytona once and that date would be about right.
