My chum had Yamaharley decals made up for his Harley/Yam bitsa.  No one knows what that means either, but if they can be bothered to ask he's happy to tell them.

Norvill, Triton, Tribsa, there is an ancient tradition of such names, and bikers understand the history and significance of such monikers.
I was born a rocker.  I'll die a rocker.  And I'm proud of it.

Indeed, Triton, Norvil etc are now recognised classics in their own right, but not sure you could say the same about Norley. I've seen alternatives mentioned such as Harton and Nordon, though I quite liked Narley. Given the frame is the classic featherbed Norton, I went for Norton on the tank in the end. It might cause a raised eyebrow with the rivet counters of the classic world, but they can be ignored lol.

I've wanted to build something like this for years. I'd call mine a Snortster.

Can't wait to see it mounted up.
"What's the use of having a motorcycle if you can't go tearing around staying out late?" Ralph asked reasonably.

Sadly an idiot damaged the paintwork while fitting the Monza fuel cap...  I was livid...as the idiot was me.   :(

Spoke to the painter and it can be repainted when he gets back from holiday in a couple of weeks

About half way through making the new foot levers/pegs. Next step is to machine the bronze bushes which they'll pivot on, and make sure the new parts will fit on the billet mounts already made for the bike. When all the machining is finished, I will of course spend an hour or two polishing them.

Test fit of the new levers, we used roller bearings rather than bronze bushes.. still needs polishing of course, though I may have the pegs ceramically anodised..
