Norton V8
Norton V8 Featherbed.
The V8 Norton It's two Reliant Robin (Alloy) blocks welded together, with 1/2 " offset for the rods. The
crank and rods and other internals are standard at the moment. It's 1700cc (2 x 850) and standard tune,
John Crudgington, the guy who built it, is currently ironing out wrinkles, the main one being
vapourisation of fuel in the fuel pump which is located between the blocks. Because it's running a 180
deg crank, it sounds like a 1963/64 Coventry Climax F1 engine.

Unky's Bike




Woody and his better half Sarah Wills bought there pride and joy to The Vic all the way from Worthing on the south coast on the night they filmed Holiday Showdown, Its a bit of a trick Suzuki Hayabusa and its a drag bike but road legal, reaching speeds of 204 mph its got no added extras like nitrus, just up-market engine internals and a lot of fine tuning to frame and engine seen here doing a burnout on The Vics carpark and one inside for good measure.


1972 Norton Comando rebuilt from the ground up by Norvil,is pretty standard apart from a high cam and gas flowed head and belongs to Andy Murdin from Nottingham






started life in 1987 as a run of the mill Kawasaki 1500 vulcan, I got it in 1991 and started modding the odd bit here and there, I've been round Europe on her and she has visited my favourite Boozer The Vic many times.Last year I set about the customising with a vengeance,

A new one off wide stainless rear wheel, for this to fit the shaft drive tunnel has to be reduced and the swing arm widened then 200 Avon rear tyre fitted. Stainless front wheel, stainless spokes all round, then dropped the back end fitted Konis.

Progressive suspension in the front end. I then made a One off single seat, got that covered,some stainless fabrication was fitted, and all bolted together with polished stainless nuts and bolts,And sat and mirror polished all the engine cases and yolks and anything else I could polish.

See ya all up at the Vic, Jerry.    P.S. I could be tempted at the right price?
