According to Wikipedia: “The Norton Manx or Manx Norton is a British racing motorcycle that was made from 1947 to 1962 by Norton Motors Ltd.” And as any avid motorcycle enthusiast will know, this is a truly iconic brand and model – dominating the TT as well as other races in the day. Knowledgeable readers will also know that Norton has not been in the motorcycle business for a number of years, having changed hands several times over the last few decades. Rights to the Manx name was sold off in the late 1960s, and currently resides (since 1994) with UK Engineer, Andy Molnar. If the date of the bike is correct, this looks to be a Molnar Manx – a faithful reproduction of the original Manx but NOT a true Norton.

2010 Norton Manx for sale on eBay

From the seller:
(translated with Google – the original text is in French)
Bore diameter: 90 mm
Reinforced motor bearings
Gardner carburetor: 40 mm
Box Quaife 6 reports with barrel
Maxton rear shock absorbers
Magneto electronic ignition
Öhlins steering damper
18 “wheels with Avon racing tires
Integral fairing with integrated recovery tray
Carbon front and rear fenders
Front brake Fontana 4 cams 230 mm
Electronic rev counter

Maintenance documentation as well as new maintenance parts are also provided with the motorcycle.

Molnar Precision Ltd. offers a number of reproduction parts, including chassis, suspension, engine and transmission pieces. They also offer complete bikes, which I believe this to be. They are not cheap, and including currency conversion from GBP to USD would result in $40k+ for a build. There is very little info on this bike – and even fewer pictures – but one can make the reasonable assumption that it is the 90mm bore spec, based on the ad text, which works out to 500cc (see the Molnar spec sheet). With a starting bid of $28,000 and a Buy It Now of $35k this could be in the money when compared to a new Molnar build, but interested parties should do some serious research before jumping in. The good news is that the bike is already in the US, so that makes the transport that much easier. Check it out here. Definitely not a core RSBFS offering, but we thought it interesting. Jump over to the Comments and share your thoughts on this remade classic. Good Luck!!

  • I think i is time to let the Norton name die. Or just have Triumph buy the naming rights and rebranding Triumphs but these boutique bikes seemingly make little sense for both builder and buyer.

    Cool looking bike but for that kind of money just buy an original bike, easier to work on and get parts. I can’t imagine the pain by a simple workshop/driveway tip over on this thing

  • Pricey, but beautiful.

  • These are popular for people who race in the vintage TT on the Isle of Mann . Yes they do pay at least this kind of money (check out the price of a Paton). This Manx has the best of the best a racer can buy for this Vintage TT class.

    There is currently a Norton motorcycle manufacturer in England making an honest go of it.
