The Seeley Norton




The Seeley Norton was a project created to realise a dream of building a period race bike.  Most people would stop at the building part, however the team of Kenny Cummings and Dan Rose not only wanted to construct, but also race competitively and eventually win.  They set themselves a year to achieve it, an ambitious goal no matter which way you look at it.  

The build has some fantastic details and it's obviously built for the track, but what sets it apart is the fact that it would be equally at home as a show piece.

"A modern interpretation of a Seeley MKII Racing Norton motorcycle with a hand fabricated frame by Roger Titchmarsh and imported from Minnovation Racing in the UK.  Powered by a custom Commando motor assembled from Steve Maney Racing components and JS Motorsport internals.  No paint… just bare metal." http://seeleynorton.com/

Will they achieve their goal?  You can read more about the team and follow their adventures on their very informative diary here
