![CDATA[
The original Norton Company was formed by James Lansdowne Norton at 320, Bradford Street, Birmingham, in 1898. In 1902, Norton began building motorcycles with French and Swiss engines. In 1907, a Norton ridden by Harry Rembrandt 'Rem' Fowler won the twin-cylinder class in the first Isle of Man TT race, beginning a sporting tradition that went on until the 1960s. The first Norton engines were made in 1907 with production models available from 1908. These were the 3.5bhp (490cc) and the 'big four' (633cc), this began a line of side-valve, single-cylinder engines which continued with few changes until the late 1950s.

Owned since 2006, this lovely 350cc Norton appears largely original which is rare as most were cannibalised as the 'featherbed' frame was desirable and used to build 'Tritons'. It would appear our vendor, who is sadly no longer with us, restored the motorcycle between 2007 and 2009 for which a large amount of invoices can be found within the history file. The brightwork is in very good order as is the paintwork on both tank and guards making this Norton is a very handsome bike indeed. The odometer reading of 60,723 is believed to be correct and within the history file are previous MoT test certificates and a UK V5 registration document which are accompanied by invoices and the Norton Owners Club details, for which our vendor was a member. This is a very popular motorcycle offered without reserve.
