I live for the CABE
I apologize you didn't recognize this as a Manx. Posted in another Facebook page somewhere as a Manx.This is not a photo of a Manx Norton, it is a photo of one of the three "Daytona 88" racers sent to the USA Norton distributor Berliner for the 1962 racing season. A Manx Norton has a single-cylinder 500cc engine with overhead camshafts working the valves. The 1962 Daytona 88 bikes were extra special because they were "works" bikes with engine parts that were not available for sale to the public, such as bucket cam followers riding on a needle-bearing cam that had pressure oil feed to the cam lobes. Also the carburettors for this year were specially made by Amal, they were long-body right and left-handed Amal Gp carbs.
If you are interested in owning the last surviving '62 Daytona 88, or a restorable 1959 Manx with matching numbers that was ridden by Reg Pridmore to a championship, PM me and maybe we can make a deal.
Here is a Manx in 1/9 scale and also two that I went to see at the Las Vegas auction. I did not bid on either one.
Prices on these are now falling from what I see when one comes up for sale.
How much are you asking for your bikes? You're in Southern California? Easy to view?
Here is one FOR SALE that is completely restored on the Norton Facebook group for 30,000 pounds in U.K.
