that has to be one of the best lookin notrton rigid frames ive ever seen.
my first bike was an 800 dollar norton, that some wishful thinker had welded a rear section onto a stock commando frame. terrible job ,and it looked just as bad as it was. found a rigid triumph for 400 bucks, "gave" the norton to a guy who did nortons for 400 bucks, and started a lifelong love of britbikes
finish it, please, and post the build.
love that rear fender

I had a 72' Norty chop in a rigid frame. It was raked out and rode like shit! Prob cause the tubes were in need of some rebuild. Anyway I had Fred Hernandez derake it back to stock and put a new DNA -2 springer on it and it rode nice! I should have never gotten rid of that bike! But hell I know it's in good hands. The biggest thing to make sure of with the rigid frame is the iso's for the motor are in REAL good shape. If they are not it will vibrate like a bitch and make for an uncomfortable ride.
