"I am happy to be a Norton owner again."


  

          

Hello all,

I purchased for the second time, a '67 N15CS. I bought one new in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for $1,115.00. I remember that it was in January and the temp was -4 degrees below, but I had to test drive it. The dealer thought I was nuts and he was probably right. I put 10,000 miles on it and loved it. Then, family stuff and I sold it.

I've always thought that I would get another one just like it. Well, I finally did and I have put it back to very close to the bike I had. Knobby tires, shorty exhausts, etc. Along with that, new battery, new tires, new fenders, old horn, new paint, etc. etc. etc. I think I know much more about the hybrids now than I did back in the '60's. I have learned a lot just reading the posts on this website. Thanks!

I was happy to find this site and happy to have a Norton again.

N15Rider,

Lincoln, NE

Congradulations on your reentry into Nortondom.

I am not real familar with the Hi breds. What is the diff between the P-11 and N-15, if any?

Mike,

My friend has a '67 P-11 and the differences I see are:

Aluminum tank & fenders, high pipes. The engine seems to be pretty much the same as the N15CS.

I think a lot of the P-11's came to the USA, mainly Calif. and were used for racing. I've heard the P-11 called the "Desert Racer".

As you can probably tell, I am far from an expert on these bikes, but I am having fun with mine and learning more about them.

Bruce

To further prove that I know little about the Norton N15CS, can anyone tell me what the CS stands for?

Also, are there many of these bikes in the UK these days?

Thanks,

N15rider
