The 'Iceni Norton' was built in 1973 by Nick Parravanni in Norfolk UK for the local 'ace' Greg Page.
Nick owns and runs the company Competition Fabrications, and Greg owned a motorcycle shop called Iceni Motorcycles in Swaffham, Norfolk.
The bike was the sister to a BSA gold star engined racer that Nick had built earlier using his own frame design, which he himself raced before selling it to John Cronshaw, who achieved legendary success on it!
Most of the Norton was made by Nick,ie frame,yokes,tank,brackets etc and exhaust .The wheels were cast locally by CMA Wheels in Mildenhall.
Greg had a great racing season on it with many wins and held the outright lap record on the bike at Cadwell Park on the 1.5 mile circuit.
The front wheel was replaced after a very heavy high speed crash at Russels corner at the Norfolk circuit of Snetterton [when it was a very quick bend] and tore the front end off!!
The picture with the race plates on is when Greg raced it.
The other is how it looked after the next owners, brothers Bill and Chris Skedge,had it after Nick had refurbished the bike in 1979 with a new exhaust etc, but I don't think it was ever raced after that.
As can be seen from the picture at the bottom on the right the Iceni was a copy of the 1970 Dunstall "Drainpipe".
The bike was part of a garage clearout the results of which our company Norton Motors Ltd in Rugeley was to sell off. When I saw the bike I bought it. The plan is to rebuild it with a shortstroke Commando engine.
