I fail in love with the bonnie when I saw it in the show room and now that it is in the garage I love it even more. Am I sick or what?

Currently restoring a Norton Atlas to Cafe racer spec. for a friend and honestly am apalled at the quality of the castings and fit, the only good bit is the frame (Featherbed) the way the engine is bolted in to my mind is a bit Iffy still when its done I might have a different opinion.........
My thoughts only....T.U.D.

Funny you would say so. I started off with Hagon Classics, but was underwhelmed with the performance. The Ikon 7614s in the longer length (ala Thrux and Scram) tighten up the handling and quicken the steering. They're a great complement to the Ikon fork springs and the EBC floating front disc. Check out the photos below for a view of my bike with the Hagons:
