John Mcguinness on rotary Norton
Well it seems that the classic TT may get more interesting as John is supposed to be riding a Norton this year, Good luck to him i think if its reliable and he gets on with it he should get a result.

Talk at the time was the bike would not be reliable but Norton and Hizzy proved them wrong.

Is this more than the originally planned 'parade lap' then?

I thought it was the parade only. His column in PB says he got some exciting plans with Honda that he can't mention yet.

Probably as I predicted on the dark side 2 years ago Honda will spoil what I thought of then an equal playing field by giving JM an RVF750.

Or an NSR500, Bruce could have squeezed a 130mph lap out of that Yamaha if he had needed to. The die is cast, nothing else will come close. Maybe we'll see Ollie Linsdell on the Paton V4 too.

I think you are wrong there Spannerman, I'm not one for lap records or super lap times, I believe that a race should be won at the slowest speed possible, I do however have that info from the best authority, there was plenty in the bag.

Hi all

its a parade lap, put simply you cant build a f1 engine from new parts, the tt engines had direct oil feeds to the rotor bearings,  the origonal gearbox is not a owo1 as often thought it was similar designe but the pitch ext is differant.

In short you would need deep pockets to race a RC, Rcw or Nrs, one other thought crosses my mind, when steve first rode  the bike he said it was unriderble as Ron had it, after the tt Jefferies, Rymer and Halam rode the bike, is it realy back as hislop rode it, its definatly got rons yamaha master cylinder not the hrc master cylinder that hislop used. Below is a very rare picture a Norton how any 19 bikes? its pre tt i recon as non of the tanks have the union jack
