CVMG People’s Choice

June 2017

At the 2017 Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Group’s Paris National Rally, my 1970 Norton Fastback won the People’s Choice award for British bikes! I was totally surprised as I wasn’t even going to enter the bike. I found out at the end of the day when someone told me that I had won!

This was a super nice validation of all the work and effort I’ve put into this bike. It’s also great to see that bikes that are not concours-perfect are appreciated.

A colleague of mine saw my Commando in the parking lot and asked if it could be used for a photography class student photo-shoot. They brought in lights, smoke and some cheesy props and had fun. A student made a video, but I recut the video as I didn’t like the music and it was a bit long.

    Very impressive restoration of the Fastback.
    I am intrigued as it appears that there is no ridge on tail section is this correct?
    I have a 68 Fastback and no ridge and have been wondering if this was export model as all pictures at Earls Court have a ridge with Norton logo.
