Footnotes

  • After a brief racing career from 1957-59, Paul Dunstall's connection with Norton race motorcycle development began in 1959 with a request from Fred Neville to build a Dominator for him to race. After competition successes including IOM TT on the Dominator, this attracted Norton owners to Dunstall's work, and after acquiring experimental race engines from Norton in 1962, interest snowballed, with Dunstall developing the Domiracer line of engine modifications and performance parts.

    After moving to larger premises in Eltham in 1964, Dunstall's experience with competition motorcycle development accumulated to the point where by 1966 he was building complete Norton machines, and he was closely linked to the development of the Norton Commando. This spread to other marques and by the end of the 1960s, Paul was developing parts for Honda and Triumph, and towards the end of the 1970s the stable of roadsters wearing the Dunstall badge had expanded to include Honda, Triumph, Yamaha, and Kawasaki.

    After a decline in the motorcycle market at the end of the decade, Paul sold the Dunstall name in 1982, leaving behind him a legacy of victorious race-bikes and a pedigree of roadsters still collectable to this day.
