Description NORTON Mod 50 1956 350cc British motorcycle barn find RUNNING

This is how we like to find `em! Lovely old Norton fresh out of a mate`s shed .. selling on behalf of his missus as sadly he`s gone ahead.
It`s a 1956 swinging arm 350cc Norton. Collected this morning and running by dinner time .. all it needed was a wipe of the points (magneto ignition) for a spark. Tank is clean inside so fresh petrol, eased the taps and the carburretor tickled up nicely. Fresh oil in the tank bit of a squirt down the bore and she ran for the first time in year`s! This is one of those bikes that I should keep but it needs to go. Took the opprtunity to ride it .. clutch works,gears work brakes work .. oil mist cleared after a few minutes and it`s returning nice and clean. Engine is sweet with a lovely thump on tickover with a bit of retard.
Oily rag condition .. mileage showing 26,973 but the speedo needle shows 20mph stood still! so take this with a pinch of salt. I hope the pictures show what it`s like. Steering damper is tight and there is a bit of drag on the front brake but with a bit of fettling I think you could have a very good useable runner. Do come and view it and have a little ride.The log book is present and the number is non-transferable.Matching engine and frame numbers. A local motorcycle dealer can deliver Jax of York average cost is around £150 .. got his number for an accurate quote and you pay him direct. Cash on collection or banker`s draft with time to clear. No reserve and auction will go to the end so that means there is no buy it now. Bid with confidence for a belter of a bike. All the best Denis
