Nice desert sled.  Won't take too much work to make it really shine.  I don't recall them in green though.  For soem reason I think of them in red.

Hey, mate, why is there a Norton motor in your Matchbox? 

And let's avoid jokes about it coming with a spare motor.....

Why have I never owned a Norton?  Some unit and pre-unit Triumphs and the odd BSA Goldie, Rocket 111, etc but never a Norton. And way too many Hondas, Yamahas, the odd Kwacka and a shed load of Suzies, but never a Norton.

Got my first SC plates today :) for the F800ST.

"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Yep, Dad repainted it way back when.  I'm a fan of British Racing Green.  You can still see some of the original red behind the sidecover.

If your dad painted it and it's been that way for decades, I'd keep the color the way it is.  I'd guess it has more sentimental value right now than as a collector item, so keep it to remind you of your dad and his passion for bikes.

Yeah, should be fun. Needs some TLC, but complete and in good shape mostly.
