This is one of the very first Arthur Carol designed CS1 Norton's to have been made. Leaving the Norton works on the 20th of December 1930 and sold to Mr H G Turner (possibly for racing) as not registered for road use until 1934.
With its three-brace frame only used in 1930/1 for CS1's, left hand exhaust port, fitted with factory four speed sturmey archer gearbox (Daytona ratios) it still retains its original high lift cams 76 1-1/6.
Purchased in approximately 1969 in a dismantled state by the current vendor, the machine was untouched and kept in boxes due to moving around the country for RAF duties.
Restoration started in 2003 on retirement, the engine was restored by well known Brooklands tuner Francis Beart's mechanic Keith Manning (document on file)
Large file with various photos, documents for work carried out including George Cohen
100% of the sale of this 1930 Norton CS1 is going towards the purchase of the local church. Which the current vendor's distant relation built. All the villagers are doing their little bit to seal the deal.
V5 and old logbook present.
