The alternator basket for all Dommis with alternator.
This part was not available as a Genuine Factory Part for over 4 decades.
Not easy to make, which probably explains it. A new casting tool was called for, which doesn't come cheap...

Brought to you by the team that is as crazy about classic Nortons as you are.

New Calipers- yet to be anodized and polished.
New Norton Calipers!
Seeing that the secondhand calipers available on the net have mostly had it with iffy threads and worn bores, not to mention the wide-spread idiocy of drilling holes in the back to get the rear piston out, we have decided to invest in new tooling to re-manufacture the original type caliper.
In modern terminology they are "monoblock" construction and thus extremely stable. Paired to our 13mm master cylinders these calipers can actually stop a Commando quite effectively.
The genuine Norton calipers will shortly be finished and available through the webshop.

Forged Pistons for Norton 750cc Twins
After taking the Production Racer ("Andover Norvil") side on from the Hemmings we were looking for an alternative piston manufacturer. After various dead ends we decided to go to Omega and to invest in our own forging tool which Omega now use to make our pistions.
We have just received the first batch. The pistons come complete with Rings, Gudgeon Pins and Clips.

The Pen that signed the Deal
April Fools Day- a bit of Self-Indulgence!
Exactly ten years ago today Andover Norton was taken over from BSA/Regal Group by the Seifert family.
This was the high point of my career as at first Norton spares dealer, then Norton importer for Germany, and then Managing Director of the last existent Norton Group PLC company that was by now fully owned by myself.
I had had the dream to take on responsibility for what I saw as a sleeping giant. Andover Norton provided manufacture and engineering backup for all the self-acclaimed "Norton Specialists" but was virtually invisible to the Norton enthusiasts, keeping an extremely low profile and letting others reap the benefits.

Ten Years on...
With the new boss having a background of dealing in Norton parts it was an all-time first for Andover Norton to be led by an owner conversant with the subject matter.
Not easy for both sides. The management team used to muddle on in traditional style- "We never did that", "They can always buy this part elsewhere", "It is all in hand (but not in stock)"- but the owner used to provide a 100% fill rate to customers' orders.
By now all customers will admit Andover Norton has improved in the last ten years. Not only have stock and turnover increased enormously, but our fill rate is second to none. The range of parts we do has about doubled, and product quality increased.
And the owners- now three young adults all riding Nortons in everyday life and on the track- are enthusiastic about the company.
At a club rallye in fancy attire- Summer 1977
And yet another anniversary!
Also on 1st April, but in 1977, now 40 years ago, I collected my first Commando 850Mk3 Interstate from RB Equipe, London.
At the time a student at Hamburg University after my two years in the army little did I know this was going to be the start of my career in the Norton spares world.
Even less that I was going to eventually end up as the worldwide #1 Norton parts dealer.
