First things first, follow the link and get John Coltrane's seminal classic A Love Supreme playing.


Brian found the '65 Norton 650ss hanging around a bar in downtown DC. This motorcycle had taken the long way round... UK to Canberra and, in some bizarre twist, onward to DC.

Thirteen years in that window!

Anyway... life has a way of happening, the bar closed, and Brian bought the Norton.

It took a few weeks of wrenching and test rides : new coils, diodes, doodads, and what-nots but the old Norton is running strong now.

We followed Brian and the Norton on a grey, yet fresh, midwinter day to the National Arboretum.

Check it all out in the gallery below.

Shop the look, feat. VKTRE, Rev'it, and Biltwell, here.
