1967 Norton Dominator 650SS
Registration no. PAU 35G
Frame no. 123113
Engine no. 123113
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 downdraft 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. Manufactured in 1967 and first registered in 1968, this Dominator 650SS was acquired by the vendor's brother in late 1994 and completely rebuilt in 1995/1996. It then remained unused until the vendor's brother emigrated, whereupon it passed to the vendor. The latter used the Norton once in 2003 when the odometer reading was 11,525 miles, since when it has been stored. The current odometer reading is 11,555 miles. The following upgrades are fitted: Boyer electronic ignition; Superblend main bearings; halogen headlight. The machine has recently been serviced and re-commissioned ready for sale; all bills for work carried out are on file together with V5C documents, expired MoTs, etc.
