Property of a deceased's estate
1957 Norton 497cc Dominator 88 SS Project
Registration no. NFN 468
Frame no. M122 73685
In November 1951 Norton's 500cc twin-cylinder engine found a new home in the racing singles' 'Featherbed' duplex frame. Initially for export only, the newcomer - titled 'Dominator 88' - was the first production Norton roadster to feature the lightweight, race-proven chassis. Outwardly identical to its 500cc Dominator 88 brother, a 596cc Dominator 99 twin was announced in the autumn of 1955. In April 1961, high-performance SS variants of the Dominators were introduced boasting twin carburettors, enlarged inlet ports, a siamezed exhaust, and the camshaft of the 650cc Manxman. When the 1963 range was announced, the Dominator 99 SS had been dropped, leaving the 88 SS to continue until October 1966.
This dismantled and incomplete Dominator 88 SS is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. The machine comes with its original buff logbook and an old-style V5 registration document.
