The Burton

So, i’m working on something that’s been done before, a modern 1200 v twin, in a featherbed wideline frame… think they are generally known as ‘Norleys’, or ‘Hartons’… but decided to get a Buell X1 engine instead, tweak it a fair bit for performance, and try to preserve the classic looks of the rest of the bike as much as possible, while using modern components (brakes, suspension etc). Should be ready by the end of March! Initial pics here.

Any ideas, appreciated!




Looks pretty awesome so far. Would love to see it in the flesh once it’s done.

very interesting idea

Thanks! Well in about 3 weeks I should have it hopefully, it’ll be in London at the end of March…

Very nice! look forward to seeing it too :slight_smile:
