The Norton Motorcycle Company (formerly Norton Motors, Ltd.) Is A British Motorcycle Marque, Originally From Birmingham, Uk.
The famous 490cc Norton side valve engine ready to ride away to vintage paradise. This Norton was the Model 9, one of the last direct-drive models the firm ever made. The belt drive Model 9 is without both a clutch and a gearbox, though it does have a slight variation of drive ratio by means of the automatic Philipson governor pulley on the crankshaft.

Owing to the non-auto carburettor, the throttle and air levers have to be juggled with at the same time when riding! The brakes are of a rudimentary bicycle design. Even in 1920, this machine was well out of date and it was to remain available until 1922.
