Once again, a distinguished old mark is priced out of reach of the "commoner".  More toys for rich boys so some yuppie can park one next to his Ferrari.

If you really want to see something nuttier than squirrel turds, Brough Superior is coming back with prices rumored to be $100,000+ and they will only build one for you if "they like you".

So many retro, or otherwise, styled vehicles that were inspired by an earlier generation of  classics are now priced as toys for rich kids.

It is ironic as more often than not, the original one was priced for the working person's pocket.

If they like me!  :o   If I had $100,000+ to blow I think they'd like me well enough :D

Actually I know quite a bit about this new Norton and have met the owner of the company. (made his money importing fireworks from China I am told). Very nice and quite serious guy. They will be imported and distributed by one of our upcoming CA dealers
South Bay Royal Enfield - South Bay Triumph and South Bay Norton. They are in Lomita CA along the Pacific Coast Highway.

Quite expensive and quite nice.
Matt Capri is the owner of South Bay Norton and happens to be the guy who just set land speed world records for Triumph.

I assume these are different from the Kenny Dreer Commando's? I was fortunate enough to get to sit on one of Kenny's a couple of years ago. Man that was a cool freaking bike. He also signed a big poster for me that is hanging in my living room.

Br. Westie, from what I have read, the 961 is the Kenny Dreer bike.
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!
