1948 Norvin

Congratulations to Larry Horn of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1948 Norvin. Larry is a five time winner. This is Larry's second win with a Norvin.

This Norvin has a Vincent 1000cc V-Twin engine and a reproduction Norton Manx Featherbed frame. He finished it 10 days ago, and it has 37 miles on the odometer.

While not quite as original as his December 2011 red Norvin, this one has several new bits worth noting and is equally as cool. Along with the reproduction frame, the brakes are repro Yamaha TZ drums and the speedo is ultra modern.

The MPH GPS Speedometer by Legendary Motorcycle utilizes and internal GPS satelite antenna so no cables are necessary. A nice little touch of technology.

I'm looking forward to seeing this bike in person. Thank you Larry for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our April Gallery.
