WD16H engine and frame numbers. Looking at the various lists available, it seems that there are gaps in the numbers known versus the numbers expected. One way to try to fill these gaps is by making an inventory of all existing numbers. This wil inevitably be an incomplete inventory many bikes lost, not everybody responding etc , but it will hopefully give some insight in the numbers. Prewar military bikes had numbers without the prefix in line with civil bikes. Frequently found are engines with an AS prefix. These are Army Spare engines. It may also indicate to a number of parts made but never used for any bikes, dumped on the market after the war.

In Cars, Motorcycles and Automobilia. Registration number UXS non-transferable. Engine number F3T. Norton introduced a new trials machine in designated the T. It employed a modified 16H frame with reduced rear stays and a set of special fork yokes that brought the forks back to the steering column, a sump guard was fitted under the crankcases and Roadholder telescopic forks were fitted with a 7″ brake and scalloped hub. The gearbox was the pre war type, used due to the limited space available behind the all alloy Wellworthy engine that made use of the ES2 cams and flywheels and a soft compression ratio.

On this page you will find Triumph , BSA , and Norton engine numbers along with frame serial numbers. Engine numbers are usually located on the drive side of most British motorcycles below the cylinder barrel or above the primary cover on the engine case its self. Often times titles are not correct and do not reflect the “true” year. Below you will find both Triumph engine and frame numbers for Triumph unit twins from and a Triumph models list from Frame and engine numbers will be the same assuming they match as they would of when they left the factory.
In , Triumph added a two-letter prefix to the actual engine number in order to indicate the month and model year – but not the actual year of manufacture. In when the coding system would have been repeated, a third letter A was added to distinguish the number from the previous years.

The Nortons that grabbed my attention when I started motorcycling on an Ariel Leader in early 74 were Commandos. However, my first Norton was a 19S cc Single, complete with white single adult Watsonian sidecar. HHL where are you? Unfortunately featherbed frames are getting harder to come by but where I can find one my aim is always to build it into an authentic Norton, perhaps not to exact original specification but clearly tasteful Norton.
Why make this my passion? To put another Norton on the road and I say Norton and not a Norton frame with some other engine in it! So, the latest project is a SS, all bits ready for assembly 99 frame after about two years of collecting and a dwindling bank balance. In my experience the way to go is to complete a partial dry build with an empty engine etc to ensure everything lines up. Always a few surprises turn up and this case was no different.
Another point is to check holes in brackets etc with correct studs and bolts after powder coating. A round file comes in handy here and will save a lot of frustration during the final build. I always like to put ready parts together in large assemblies, this serves two purposes:. One thing I have learned is that the petrol tank should be the last item to be finished as paintwork is usually damaged during storage or the trial fit period.
Another important point when preparing parts for restoration is to consider its life blood, by that I mean lubrication.

It was essentially the same as the pre-war machines and was available, in either single or double overhead camshaft form, as the cc Model 30 or cc Model In the Manx was fitted with the McCandless brothers’ revolutionary ‘featherbed’ frame which immediately became the benchmark for steering and handling, enabling the ‘Manx’ Norton to become, for many, the machine of choice with which to go motorcycle racing over the next decade and beyond. The ‘featherbed’ frame was widely considered to be the greatest single step forward in racing design since the foot change gearbox and with it, Geoff Duke was to win the Senior TT at a record average speed of

Far from being randomly selected from the production line, the Norton Atlas Ranger you see here is a final-stage pre-production prototype, a lone Ranger to go tonto on. Trading off heritage is so common now that companies will go to extraordinary lengths to invent a heart-tugging backstory to underpin their latest cynical attempt at world domination. The shock is equally composed, with enough range to cope with a wide variance in loads. Knitting everything together is the in-house built frame, offering a level of rigid composure that makes you wonder what an Atlas would feel like with bhp at the back wheel.
The Avon Trekrider rubber is up to the job without adding anything extra to the party, while a more pliant tyre would doubtless add even more refinement to the ride, and deliver the corner-hunting potential that lives in the rest of the chassis. From the moment you feed the light clutch to the biting point and dial in some revs, it delivers a smooth surging punch of drive that belies its relatively modest power figures. Getting there is aided by the superb gearbox.
The only glitches are reluctance to easily find neutral, and the imperfect fuelling. Yet to be properly dialled in, this Atlas was running very rich, robbing it of clean-revving crispness. Equally, in places it was perfect, revealing the full potential of the engine delivery. Only time will tell how reliable these new-era mass-produced Nortons are. That also makes Ranger costlier than the whole Scrambler range and the Street Twin mentioned above, before personalisation at least, so it’s top money for a bike in this class.

Here is a very genuine matching engine. The bike starts easily magneto rebuilt by Tony Cooper. It sounds superb. Handling as you would expect is brilliant. Brakes are good especially the front.
