I'm working to get back on track here. A few weeks ago I picked up the 1969 Norton P11 Ranger Dad gave me and I've decided to combine my Nortons in this thread instead of starting multiple threads.
My Dad bought this P11 brand new in 1969. I have all his original purchase paperwork and he's the only owner. I also still have a 65' Atlas project and 60' BSA Goldstar scrambler at his house. All this includes extra engines,tanks, transmissions, parts and original paperwork and loads of documentation.
I've decided not to change the P11 other than what's necessary to make it road worthy. It's too damn cool as it is. I don't care that it's not 100% original, he painted it after an unexpected get-off in the desert years ago and a few other little things here and there. I've loved the P11 since he let me ride it a few times way back when.
I've ordered stuff like fuel line (it disintegrated when I touched it), fuel and air filters, battery, primary cover gasket, new plugs, etc. I've fixed a few wiring issues although I'm probably not done with wiring on the coils. It likely needs new plug wires. I've drained the crankcase sump and picked up some new oil but still need to pickup some transmission gear oil. He also told me the clutch definitely needs to be adjusted properly.
It'll need tires. I'm thinking Kenda 761's. Maybe.
Here's a few pics:
