New England Norton Owners

New Englan Norton Owners

New England Norton Owners (NENO) is a diversified group of people interested in Norton motorcycles. In the USA we are primarily active in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Massachusetts. We are proud to have members throughout other parts of the USA.
Our club administration usually meets on the second Saturday of the month at 1:00 pm at locations listed below for lunch, club business, technical discussions, and socializing. All NENO members and Norton enthusiasts are welcome.
We also hold or participate in many other regional events though out the year including rides, shows and bike meets.
Our members have a wealth of knowledge about Nortons and are always willing to give advice and help out if needed. Technical sessions are held periodically where we discuss technical issues or work on members' projects.
NENO publishes a newsletter and this web site. Membership entitles you to all that and more.

    • Springfield MA Motorcycle show Sat+Sunday
    • Looks like an Orange county Choppers kind of atmosphere but the Antique Motorcycle Club of America has a booth there, that's my main reason for going on Saturday. osegmotorcycle.com/

    • Head gasket
    • This thread really should be in the tech forum. OP can request a move if desired. One of the problem spots is not cleaning the surfaces adequately on one or both the head and barrels. On the head. the jam nut method of installing the studs leaves a small aluminum bump next to the 3 studs. Every head I work on, I pull the studs and eliminate the bump that may prevents the head from seating as flat as it should. Then I Loctite 242 or 290 the studs in... finger tight. No aluminum deformation :whistle: On the shiny flame-rings, I have contemplated using paint stripper to remove the thermoset stuff. I may try it next build.

    • Looking for two Chain Guards
    • I need two decent chain guards for my 75 and my 74 Commando's. Might have to buy new if none are available. Alpo

    • 2017 Riding season
    • Went out for my first ride of the year on all 3 of my running bikes. The 75 Commando started right up. Thought it was going to be tougher than the 3 or 4 kicks it took to get it running. Nice rides and really enjoyable. Al(po)

    • New Zeland Manx
    • Took a peak at the article... IMHO i would not waste the money to get one of these. I raced sports cars many decades ago and won a few year long championships... the trophies are buried in the box in my office. I raced bikes at NHIS a few decades ago and found it sufficiently challenging and without being hugely financially wealthy to afford being quadropologic for the rest of my life, I decided it was better to be a pit crew or crew-chief....as far as the brutally over expensive repop Norton Manx do you think you could really run it full out and still be alive after two laps? I don't think I would...the skill required is on the same plane as a gymnast with balancing a 300Lb bike sliding mildly at speed (hi speed) and not low siding or even worse high siding at 120+MPH. For 1/20 the cost, by spring, I'll have my peppy 88SS that should top 100, with the follow up (combat) atlas engine ready for transplant. I'd like to call it the test bed for eventually putting IT in the 66 f-bed as the White high speed pursuit model with hard bags, fairing and a few tricks up my sleeve..... :evil: If it works out...WAY better than even the 68 dunstall :ohmy: All the parts are on the shelf for assembly and testing. It's happening under your noses at every tech session and no one cares :whistle:
