Description

Utilising a Norton 'Featherbed' frame combined with a 500cc Vincent 'Comet' motor, the Norvin provides an interesting take on the popularity of customised fifties motorcycles. Built in period, it made sense to combine the two top British makes' best attributes- the Featherbed chassis was said to be among the best handling and the Vincent motor was one of better power units.
