it is what it is. And for what it is, it is not bad at all. And..... lest we forget the W65 was the only game in town until the newbonnies showed up. And kaw was building 650 twins back in the 60s. So let the Romanian have his fun cuz it looks like a fun bike.
Being as Romania was firmly behind the Iron Curtain for much of Norton's existence, & it's been dirt poor forever. I'd imagine that real Norton's would be quite rare there, & this is the probably the only way the poor guy was ever going to ride a bike with Norton written on the tank.
I really like the W650. It has gear driven cams. I also like what he did with the bike. However, the mistake he made was putting Norton as already stated. I would have put Kawasaki on the tank in the the Norton font.
I understand paying tribute to a maker and even a style and support that idea ( I love the Shelby Cobra Replicas).
GM has just announced the end of iconic Australian car brand Holden. One of the key reasons given was that GM are exiting the Right Hand Drive market. What does this mean for the British Isles? Any rumblings or press coverage over there?
This site has really tanked lately. Lots of newbies posting thier problem bikes on any thread they happen to land on. "Weekend Internet Mechanics", just looking for a quick answer. They sign up just long enough to get what they are looking for. ...J.D.
I never slid before on wet pavement but just slid out on 3 month old asphalt sealant that was covered in overnight rain water a week after a snowmelt. No ice on roadway I assure you, temp was 55 degrees. I looked up asphalt sealant: awful stuff, no friction.
is going dark side a solution...
