The “holy grail custom Norton customs” is a pretty big title to live up to, but looking at the painstaking attention to detail that went into the creation of this, I would say that title fits. And not only is this the most beautiful Norton custom that I’ve seen – this has to be one of the most beautiful bikes ever. Period.
Here’s a video of a Norton 1975 MKIII being started – sounds nice, ain’t it? The Ala Verda has a tuned 1976 engine it in and also has electric start. And probably sounds even nicer with those tasty megaphones sticking out the back like that.
So what’s $75,000 for a piece of “motorcycling’s Picasso”? Hand over that stack of lottery tickets please.
