Registration no. 631 BUK
Frame no. 108605
Engine no. 108605
Norton launched its first 650cc twin, the US-market Manxman, in 1960. Available in Europe the following year, the Dominator 650 was built in standard, De Luxe and SS variants, all of which featured a new cylinder head with down-draught inlet ports. With 49bhp on tap, plentiful low-down torque and exemplary handling courtesy of its race-proven Featherbed frame, the 650SS was one of the outstanding sports motorcycles of the 1960s, being more than a match for Triumph's Bonneville in terms of all-round performance. Indeed, in February 1962 Motor Cycling achieved a best one-way speed of 119.5mph at MIRA with a 650SS, more than 10mph up on that of the Bonneville tested the previous summer. Restored in 2000, this matching numbers 650SS has been owned by the vendor for the last 12 years. During his ownership the electrics have been rewired and the magneto rebuilt, while a full engine overhaul was completed early this year (all receipts available). Noteworthy enhancements include Borrani alloy wheel rims, stainless spokes, a twin-leading-shoe front brake and chromed mudguards. '631 BUK' completed the 'John o' Groats to Lands End 2-Up' event in 2013, a distance of 1,700 miles, has had a recent oil change and is ready to go. Described as in generally very good condition, the machine is offered with dating certificate, current road fund licence, MoT to April 2015 and V5C document.
