1948 Norton International Model 30 VIN: C11 14843 Restored by Bob Ives Best of Show & Best British - Corsa Classica Bike Show Class winner - Clubman's All-British Show Restored by British bike guru, Bob Ives, this Norton was in the same ownership from the early 1970s. He started the complete restoration in April of 2014 and completed it in March of this year, just in time for the Clubman's All-British Show, winning the 1946-62 Middleweight class. A couple months later the International would be taken to the Corsa Classica Bike Show at Willow Springs Raceway, where it would win Best of Show and Best British. For those that know Bob's bikes they know that he only uses the finest chromers, painters and parts suppliers. He is a stickler for originality, and has an uncanny ability to source original parts that most people have thought to be nonexistent. The results speak for themselves, with his bikes winning at almost every major bike show including The Quail Motorcycle Gathering. About the Norton International: The Norton International or Cammy Norton is a Norton Motors Ltd overhead cam (OHC) motorcycle built between 1931 and 1957. Originally a TT replica sports roadster, the OHC Model 30, was one of the most capable 500cc singles of its era. During the 1930s it could be ordered from the Norton factory with all manner of racing parts fitted. Such factory bikes won many Isle of Man TT races during the 1930s, many of them 1-2-3 results. Norton factory riders on Inters, including Jimmie Guthrie, Jimmy Simpson, Stanley Woods were household names of the era. Production of the Model 30 International ended temporarily on the outbreak of World War II, and resumed in 1947 with upgrades such as the Norton Roadholder telescopic forks. In 1935 works Norton team rider Jimmie Guthrie set a number of world speed records on a Norton International at the concrete bowl track in Montlhery, France. As well as setting a new one-hour world record at a speed of 114.09 miles per hour (183.61 km/h), he also broke the 50 km (31 mi), 50 mi (80 km), 100 km (62 mi) and 100 mi (160 km) records. -
