Norton 16H Front End

This one belongs to the "Redesigning The 1956 Triumph" project. It is a very nice heavy duty pre-war girder with rebound springs that i'm reconditioning. 

The threads are fixed, some rust has been taken care of and new 26 TPI nuts installed. Next i will need to make some friction plates and then it will be totally striped/cleaned and ready for paint.

Revving up to 6800+ in the 4th Gear.

The new rebuild gearbox and the sprocket combination worked well. Honestly, at the end of the video I rolled off the throttle seeing it was still revving up, I figured i had enough for the day..
