Full Description

The Norton Jubilee was the height of sophistication amongst British motorcycles (but the bar was pretty low) when it was revealed in 1958. Named in recognition of Norton’s diamond jubilee the all-new model featured unitary construction, twin cylinders, 7,750rpm red line, scaled-down big bike styling - and was a bit of a flop.

However, its early problems were overcome and later models (like this one) were more reliable and better built. Something of a rarity now, this May 1967 version will appeal to the more mature motorcyclist who could not afford the bike in its day and is having difficulty handling the bigger twins nowadays.

More information on this, and other Norton models, can be found in the best-selling magnum opus “Norton: The Complete Story” (Crowood Press), available from all good second-hand booksellers (and some crummy ones).

In lovely, original condition this Jubilee is ready for the open road (weather permitting) and needs no MOT.
