Ed.






Here's a short clip to give ya'll an idea of what he sounds like.






I don't have Ed Norton's tags or insurance yet so I thought it would be best to keep it close to home but after the initial heat cycle I adjusted the valves, moved the shifter a bit and tooled around the neighborhood for an hour or so. 
He's quick, handles well & overall really fun to ride.
SO many people had a hand in on this bike and I recommend all of these people & their services.
(I'm sure I'll forget someone so please remind me if I skip over you)

Thank You.

Evan Wilcox   hand formed tank, tail and front fender to my specs with numerous changes along the way. Thanks for your patience Evan.
Colorado Norton Works  Matt helped & guided me through much of this bike, CNW also refurbished the hubs and provided  some parts as well.
Classic Cycles  motor rebuild, electrical. Tony was fun to hangout with while getting it tuned up & running.
Kiyo frame work for the tail & friend.
Minnovation Racing Martin makes the triple clamp set up and it;s jewlery.
New Church Moto Ginger knocked out the seat exactly how it was intended.
Prism Motorcycle Co. The boys offered to make up the velocity stacks & did they!
Old Britts Ella & Fred came through with all the parts & advice I needed, great folks.
Buchanan's  The spoked wheel masters.
DMF powder coating & chrome in record time
Olympic Coatings Thermo coating the exhaust, also in record time. 

Thanks to Chris, Bob, & especially Matt for the late night help prying the motor in & running me around Brooklyn for BI4 & of course FBean for the pics, video & putting up with me.

I think that's it.

Almost my whole commando is cnw parts. Best business I've ever dealed with for anything. Best customer service, best everything.

It's too bad there is not a harley shop that can offer the same amount of service, innovation, and reliability.

Fantastic seeing and hearing the worlds coolest No-Tone in action, the pipe makes sweet music. Definitely unapproachable.
