Property of a deceased's estate
1984 Norton 588cc Interpol Project
Registration no. not registered
Frame no. 3091
Engine no. 3091
After a lengthy development programme commenced in the 1970s by NVT, Norton's Wankel rotary-engined roadster debuted in 1982 as the police-specification Interpol, though it would be 1987 before the motorcycling public got to sample the rotary's excellent handling and smooth almost vibration-free engine in the form of the un-faired civilian Classic. One of approximately 350 Interpols produced, this example is an ex-MoD Military Police machine formerly registered '98 KB 88' while in military service. The front brake callipers are seized and have been detached, and thus the machine is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. Alternatively, it would make an excellent basis for a replica of the works John Player and Duckhams-sponsored race bikes of the late 1980s/early 1990s. Offered with a 1988 MOD sales invoice; an MOD Form 654 'Application For Disposal of a Cast Vehicle'; and an MOD Certificate of Transfer – Ex Government Vehicle' form.
