The Norvin is a very beautiful bike. It's essentially a Vincent engine mounted in a Norton frame and has been made since the 1950's. It is such an impressive looking 1000cc engine but does come with a downside. This downside is the weight of the Vincent engine which obviously effects the handling of the bike. Whatever the case it's still a classic motorcycle that has made it's place in cafe racer history. Hailwood Motorcycle Restorations in the U.K still builds brand-new 1000cc to 1200cc Vincent motors to modern specs if you are in that part of the world.
