Canadian Jean Des Rosiers knows his way around Nortons and thought we would like to see his slightly different take on a Norton cafe racer, he added some of his own ideas and the result is this very nice looking Norton 850. Besides all of the other detail work, he added some features you can’t get from a catalog or swap meet, Jean designed and fabricated both the primary and secondary drives with belts. Neat!
He documented the entire process in an extensive photo blog. Take a slow cruise through the images and you’ll appreciate what a great job he did. Just because you’re building a bike others have built doesn’t mean you have to do what they did. Very nice, Jean!
