Photos for ID

Post  Norman52 on Mon Jul 20, 2015 10:33 am

Hi

I used to have a motorbike which I bought in 1963.  It got cleared out a few years later when I left home.

I've tried to identify it from on-line photos but can't so I've included a link to a couple of photos.  My recollection was that it was a Norman from 1951 and there was something new/special about the front suspension.  It had a Villiers 197cc two stroke which for some reason it was felt necessary to have a decompression lever.  The spark plug had 3 prongs and was prone to clogging up.  I think it took a 16:1 mixture but ran better/more smoothly on 14:1.  1 up 2 down gearbox and with a following wind would get to something like 60mph.  

Can someone confirm make, model & year and put my mind at rest?
(I'm not allowed to post a link so you'll have to do copy/paste manually)

With the lack of response am I to take it that no-one recognises the bike and it may not in fact be a Norman?
