This stunning Seeley Norton was built by Kenny Cummings and Dan Rose for the latest season of Cafe Racer TV. Amazingly the total weight of the bike is just 136 kgs (300lbs), that beautiful Norton Combat engine is race tuned and turns out 70+hp making this a highly capable track day bike.
It was built in the style of the Seeley MKII Norton with a hand-fabricated frame built by Roger Titschmarsh out of the UK, the fairing, seat and fuel tank are all handmade, the engine is built from a selection of the most balls-to-the-wall components available and by the looks of the monstrous twin vented discs on the front end, this thing could stop in a hurry.
If you haven’t yet seen Cafe Racer TV, it’s well worth a watch, you can catch it on Discovery HD.
