A little history about the Norton make and the Dominator model. One of the great names in the British motorcycle-industry is Norton, founded by James Lansdowne Norton in 1901. Uring the 1930’s Norton dominated road racing, winning almost all the major TT races from 1931 to 1938. The Dominator is a twin cylinder motorcycle. To compete against the Triumph Speed Twin. The original Dominator was designed in 1947 and 1948 by Bert Hopwood. Who had been on the Speed Twin design team at Triumph. The Dominator model was offered to the public from mid 1949, where the particular engine-design design set the pattern for Norton twins for the next 30 years. Mid-century thoroughbred has been restored three years ago to very high standards by a retired motorcycle-engineer. Since then the machine has only done 793 careful miles in order to break in, thus is ready for instant use right now. The bike starts at first kick and sounds really heavenly!! , where out on the street in handles just like it did on day one! During the complete process of restoration great care has been taken to keep it stock, like for instance when both wheels were restored, both the original wheel-rims have been chromed/straightened and were then painted and pinstriped in the center (to original spec) at fairly high expense, instead of being replaced for new chrome-plated replica’s at lesser expense (like often is the case). Furthermore, when not in use, a machine like this would do great when being displayed. And enjoyed in a shop, office, hallway, den, or mancave etc, or at antique motorcycle-events. All together this is a great opportunity to acquire a machine that can serve you for life, and then will also keep its value. This bike comes with a European Certificate of Origin (Title), which official document. In your name and states the make, model, VIN, engine-number, year of manufacture, displacement, weight etc, plus an official bill of sale from my company here in Belgium. Furthermore Ill make sure that all the correct export-paperwork will be in place before the bike leaves from here, which documents will make the process of importing it into the US an easy ride.
