For Sale: 1921 Norton 490cc 16H. £5,175. One careful owner ;0).


As for the dug-up 1921 Norton 490cc 16H (pictured above), Walker said: “There will be a lot of buried motorcycles across the country. Sometimes bikes have even been used for landfill but that makes the ones that have survived all the more rare.”

But the Norton 16H was far from being a complete motorcycle. It was, quite literally, a heap of rusted parts. And yet, even in its skeletal form, the 16H sold for a whopping £5,175.

This is a great article all about the joy, & immense value of "Barn Finds". 
Now, does anyone have a barn?...
