Between 1911 and 1954, Norton produced a series of bikes all around a 490cc side-valve engine. These bikes were referred to as the 16H – H stood for Home, as in a domestic model. The 16C (Colonial) was introduced in ’21, and had more ground clearance for roads in poor condition.
The 490cc engine produced 14 horsepower, good for a top speed of 68 miles per hour. This specific Norton 16H has been stored for an unknown amount of time, but it’s claimed to still be in complete, original, and in great condition. It has the original seat, the gas tank was filled with oil to preserve it, and the odometer shows just 176 miles. This bike definitely deserves a close inspection. Find this Norton 16H for sale here on Craigslist in Western New York for $9,000.
