Just took delivery of this beauty shaped by local legend Luke Daniels from Daniels Surfboards. He has shaped an epic new school single fin that I will be airbrushing some custom art on to.
It’s really satisfying when a a job turns out like this one did. Restoring a 79 year old classic to its former glory is always going to be a challenging job, especially when its a motor bike that has lived a pretty rough life.
It was sand blasted back to bare metal before being straightened out and epoxy primed. The sliver and black were sprayed, then pinstripe and logo were hand painted before being given a solid 2K clear coat.
Norton’s of this vintage are a pretty rare breed, so it was a bit of an honour to get to work on this piece of motor cycle history.
After chipping away at this project sporadically over the last few years, its great to finally see have all the pieces of the puzzle on the table. Time to finally put this together and light it up.
THE HQ IS ALIVE!
It’s been 5 long years since the old girl arrived in the stable and it was nothing short of beautiful to finally hear her come to life the other night surround by close family and friends! Another major step closer to getting it back on the road.
