1964 Norton Atlas Scrambler Cycle World Road Test / Specifications / Performance / Photos / Price

Filed under: Norton — Tags: — dadsvintageads @ 11:33 am

…the major point of difference between the road Atlas and the Scrambler is the frame. The road model is built around the “Featherbed” frame, which was developed by Norton for their road racing machines. The Featherbed frame contributes a lot toward the road-holding that has made Norton famous, but it was never intended for off-pavement work. Therefore, the Atlas Scrambler has been built around a Matchless frame, which is rugged enough to take the pounding a scrambler is sure to receive…

1972 Norton Commando 750 – Rideability

Filed under: Norton — Tags: — dadsvintageads @ 1:20 pm

…What do we really mean by Commando rideability? Ask a skilled Norton rider and he will speak of electrifying acceleration, big power right from the start, a turbine smooth ride and ultra powerful disc braking. All great features, but not unique among superbikes. It is the rest of what he says that gives the Commando that certain charisma and puts it in a class apart.

That slim feel between the legs, that low weight, that racebred steering and road-holding possessed only by the Norton. In short, rideability gives him the confidence to experience his skills to their full potential. No real rider should accept less.

2005 Norton 952 Commando – an all new neo-classic Commando

Filed under: Norton — Tags: — dadsvintageads @ 3:39 pm

“This bike isn’t about horsepower numbers or outright performance – it’s about the quality of the riding experience, how it responds, how it feels, and yes, how it looks, too. That’s why we call it a roadster rather than an outright sportbike.”

Kenny Dreer (upper left) is 57 years old. He moved from New Jersey to Oregon in the ’80s, and was a jack-of-all-trades before founding Vintage Rebuilds in ’92. Paul Gaudio (upper right) was previously an industrial designer for Adidas with a passion for motorcycle racing. Dreer and Gaudio invited Cathcart to ride their prototype in order to get his feedback. One piece of Sir Al’s advice – raise those stylish exhausts for increased cornering clearance.
