I couldn't post the link but if you go to the following site and do a search for 1955 Norton Inter 500cc Pictures

http://www.vintagebike.co.uk/

You can see an International with a featherbed frame but the international comes with a different tank, seat, etc.

Love it, I think that motor ran well, just full of oil. The pilots used to spin the prop to push out oil every preflight... Given the chance, I'd ride it ;D

If I were a machinist I'd build a twin motor but not a radial. This is a sweet work of art.

Quite the café racer...
Maybe worth about that in parts -- it's got that early speedo that rotates counterclockwise going for it, tank looks good. Nothing like leaving the carbs and exhaust off top treat that engine right.
