Norton Cafe racer

The Norton got some attention in the evenings of the last week so i mounted on the front a home-made front fork ( made by the same man Munteanu Florin  that also Had the machine for more than 30 years and rode it  probably over 100.000 km ) Fork is running on air / springs ( air for fine adjusting ) . i added an original Road-holder fork upper three , and the home made lower one .

As the engine is all modified to bigger bore , home made  cylinders  , Modified timing , Racing Cams , Bigger valves , bigger bored cylinder-head (intake exhaust )  twin  Racing Dellorto Carburetor , there is no repair manual for this bike , there is only the man who built it , that knows everything in the engine.
We made an inspection on the engine and everything looks good on the inside :)

I changed the oem oiltank as it could only be fitted sideways because of the Dellorto Carbs & filter . and i made a new alloy oiltank , closed the frame in the rear , and added a stainless battery tray that should hold a small battery . Polished the timing part .
