"Identification 2"


  

          

Hello everyone.

OK, so no-one has any ideas on my first post, so how about this.

I would like to try and trace the bike if possible (and if it still exists of course). Does anyone have any experience of doing this?

Regards.

Hi

You made your request a bit of a challenge because you neglected to mention what country you were in. However given your mention of the M5 Im guessing the United Kingdom. Correct?

If so your best bet would be to contact the UK Norton owners club.http://www.nortonownersclub.org/

I understand they have a scheme (linked with the Science museum in London ??)which can be used to chase down old numbers.

A Dommie 99 was a standard model, a 600 with a featherbed frame. The site above also has model descriptions

Hello

Yes, sorry, I am in the UK. And you wont be impressed with the next bit either. I dont know the Reg or the frame number etc of the bike in question. When I owned the bike I wasn't really into all that, I just rode it until I got fed up of it and then part exchanged it for something else. Its only now that I am approaching retirement that I really appreciate what I lost!

Do you know how far back the DVLA go with their records, and whether they do searches?

Regards.

Hi

Im actually in New Zealand and my knowledge of the UK system is limited to letters and articles in the UK Classic bike mags.

From what I have seen you may get little help from the UK registration authority and are best to go via the UK Norton club I recomended. They will have people who have been down this road before.

That said if you have no numbers at all then you really dont have much to work with. Any 600 Dommie you see today might have been your bike.

John
