1951 Norton ES2

In England, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This ES2 sold for $10,200 after 24 bids on eBay in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The ES2 was introduced in 1927 and was originally sold as a sports bike, though by the time production stopped in 1964, it wasn’t particularly competitive in the world of fast motorcycles. Still, an almost 40 year long production run is damned impressive, and this is a lovely example of the breed thanks to a “museum quality restoration” in 2017.

This numbers-matching example (VIN: F4 39550) features a powdercoated frame, chromed tank, rebuilt engine, and new tires. It was on display at an unnamed automobile museum for a few months. The seller says it runs great but also says it’s been stored for the last two years and the new owner “will need to do the usual recommissioning and put oil, gas, battery, test the brakes, adjust the clutch etc.”
