Registration no. PRA 666
Frame no. 4 41994
Engine no. D11 23973
This Norton 'special' was purchased by the vendor's late father in the late 1970s/early 1980s as a restoration project. However, the task was never commenced and it remained in storage from the time of acquisition until the father's recent death. 'PRA 666' consists of a 1951 Norton ES2 frame and a 1949 Norton International Model 30 engine. There is a gearbox, fuel tank, a set of long Roadholder forks, an Amal 10TT carburettor, a Lucas mag-dyno, primary chain cases, a silencer and other parts. Accompanying documentation consists of an old-style continuation logbook issued on 2nd January 1957, an old-type Swansea V5 and a current V5C. However, it should be noted that only the engine number matches the details on the documentation and the successful purchaser will need to apply to the DVLA for sympathetic consideration to be able to retain the registration number. Originally a 1949 International model, 'PRA 666' was not registered for the road until 13th March 1951, suggesting that it may have been used for competition for the first two years of its life. At the time of consignment the vendor was still searching for other parts of the machine, and it is possible that further items will be found prior to the sale. 'PRA 666' is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves with regard to the completeness, or otherwise, of this Lot prior to bidding. No reserve.
