The Works Norton Kneeler

18/10/2011. The Sammy Miller Motorbike Museum.

So here we are the last bike I have to offer you from the Museum, the fabulous 1953 Works Norton Kneeler...
The first aerodynamic racing bike with a low centre of gravity. It held 33 World Speed Records, won on the banked circuit at Montlherey in France.
Riders Ray Amm and Eric Oliver.
The project was shelved in 1954 due to FIM problems.
There is one more photo for the dreamers amongst us.............
