Hislop Norton
I saw a picture on another site of someone setting off on a white rotary Norton number 19 with the Hizzy helmet and the white / red leathers.

Anyone know anything about it?  Seems odd that it wouldn't have rated a mention given the iconic status etc.

Afraid I don't know any more!

RE: Hislop Norton
Thanks for the reply - shame it isn't getting a bit more fan fare.

Of the TT racers I saw ....... DJ was the most exciting to watch but the I reckon the fastest was Hislop .

It dose look bloody nice. I've seen the Norton's go round Oulton park many years ago and I was on the island to see Micky Dunlop's lap. But I would of sold  a kidney to Hislop ride the white charger on the island.

RE: Hislop Norton
In my TT watching history I'd say that Hislops '92 white Norton (#19) bike is about as iconic as they get.

Seems very low key for such a great tribute - hopefully the organisers will pick up on it a bit more.
