    They were affectionately called
    Snortin' Norton

    By the late 1960s
    competition from Japanese manufacturers
    drove the whole British motorcycle industry into decline

    The 750 Norton Atlas was noted for its vibration
    Rather than change engines
    Norton decided to change the frame,
    and the isolastic-framed Norton Commando 750 was the result

    In 1969, the Commando was introduced
    Highlighting its styling, frame and powerful engine
    65 bhp @ 6,500 rpm
    The Commando was the most powerful and best-handling British motorcycle of its day


    The "Combat" engine was released in January 1972,
    with a twin roller bearing crank,
    crank-shaft main-bearing reliability immediately suffered

    crank-bending caused the rollers to "dig-in" to the races,
    causing rapid failure

    Older engines had used one ball-bearing main bearing
    and one roller bearing main bearing

    Electric start was introduced in 1974

    Sales were respectable but the company declined financially
    becoming insolvent in 1975

    British Biker Rally
    (BBC)


    This Rally is one good party

    Free beer, . . . I am not much of a drinker

    Great music was loud, even with my ear plugs buried deep in my ears

    Nice campground . . . great people . . . wonderful riding area

    I had a great time

    1949
    BSA A7



    The 495cc twin cylinder engine produced 26bhp and was capable of 85mph
    manufactured by Birmingham Small Arms Company at their Birmingham factory
    its name was changed to the Star Twin and later the Shooting Star
    the BSA A7 continued in production with minor modifications until 1961

    BSA A7 was the first of the BSA twin-cylinder motorcycles
    was ready for launch in 1939, but the outbreak of World War II
    delayed the launch until September 1946
    There was huge demand for affordable transportation after the war

    "Made like a gun, goes like a bullet"


    Royal Enfield


    Use of the brand name was licensed by the Crown in 1890

    Enfield Cycle Company made motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers, stationary engines, & weapons



    The original company was sold to Norton-Villiers-Triumph (NVT) in 1968
    Production ceased in 1970 and the company was dissolved in 1971

    In 1956 Enfield of India started assembling Bullet motorcycles under licence from UK components,
    & by 1962 were manufacturing complete bikes
    Enfield of India bought the rights to use the Royal Enfield name in 1995
    Royal Enfield production, continues
    & Royal Enfield is now the oldest motorcycle brand in the world still in production
    with the Bullet model enjoying the longest motorcycle production run of all time

    British Military Motorcycle


    The 50/50 Rule
    at 50 miles per hour and 50 feet,
    this Triumph looks genuine military
    (owner told me he trimmed the bike out just for fun)

    The pup tent is genuine military surplus
