I just recently completed a complete restoration on my Norton. Its a
1971 with a ’72 front end (for the disc brake) I have put a fastback
rear tail with a interstate tank. The factory never sold them this
way, but i love the fastbacks and now i can carry 5 gallons of gas for
my trips. i bought this bike from the original owner, it had been
sitting since 1979.

here is a link to a picture of the bike the day i brought it home
