Alf Sandford’s CS1 Norton runs for the first time

Many thanks to Martin Shelley for sending this note about the this rather nice 1929 Norton CS1…

The lucky new owner of the late Alf Sandford’s CS1 Norton has finally got it running again after a lot of hard work and elbow grease. He was persuaded to retain as much of the original finish as possible by myself and Simon and others, and I hope he feels it was worth the effort.

He has used Fluid Film to preserve the areas of bare metal and the areas where the original paintwork was deteriorating. Such a rare survivor deserved to avoid ‘concours restoration’ and it remains an almost unique example of an original bike in original condition.
