Norvin chain guard

As I've mentioned my Dad's memory is fading. I have not yet located a chain guard for the Norvin in his garage. I don't see one in the photo from 1958 so it may never have had one. So, chain is on the opposite side on a "Norton Norton", any recommendations? I want the bike as road friendly as possible so I need a chain guard. Thanks, Keith

I don't think so, it would need to be a mirrored version cause it is on the other side. The stock Norton is stamped the other way.

I'm not sure. Sounds like an option that could at least be used for a starting place for modification. It's very early in the project so I have lots of time to figure this out. I'm sure someone has done it already and knows the secret.

Back in November there was a picture posted in a thread called Norvin.

Hard to tell for for sure but it looks like the chainguard may have started life as a standard twin item.

I have VOC myopia; I tend to refer to Vincent parts as standard.

A Vincent chainguard works well, mine carries a comet item donated free to me by a Suffolk member. if you can get a mutilated item from a member this will be a good place to start.

If you speak to the spares company nicely they will sell you an un-painted chainguard that you can easily modify :cool:
That's what I did for my Comet special
