1957 Norton 596cc Dominator 99
Registration no. YKK 797
Frame no. M14 70558
Engine no. 70558 14M
Norton's 500cc twin-cylinder engine first appeared in the racing singles' 'Featherbed' frame in November 1951 as the Model 88. Introduced for 1956, the 596cc Model 99 sports roadster was outwardly identical to its smaller brother. Endowed with greater power and higher gearing that enabled it to top the magic 'ton', the 99 retained all the excellent handling and steering characteristics associated with the Featherbed chassis. The model remained essentially unchanged, apart from gaining alternator/coil-ignition electrics for 1958, until dropped in 1962. This eye-catching Dominator 99 was purchased by the Museum in October 2003 and restored by them at the NEC show. Accompanying documentation consists of an old-style V5C, photocopy old V5, and an expired MoT (2004). The machine's mechanical condition is not known; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to its condition, completeness, correctness, or otherwise prior to bidding.
