Message: Fantastic to find this site – it’s brilliant to see & hear these wonderful bikes again! If my memory serves me correctly the whole concept came about through a guy called Malcolm Heath (a factory employee) who raced one in Club events. In it’s original guise it was a patriotic Red White & Blue. Keep up the good work — I’ll come back!!!

Name: Brian & Doreen Crighton

Country: Staffordshire / England

Message: Came across this site by accident – but certainly a fantastic piece of history. Well done, and thank you to everybody who prepared the site. You seem to forget all the things that were achieved by myself and others in this great era for British engineering. Only sad that it is no more!! All that we can look forward to now is the occasional demonstration laps at some forthcoming events. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking everybody for their interest and support and hope to see you soon.

Name: Rick Sinn

Country: Michigan / USA

Message: I’m happy that Kenny Dreer is bringing back the Norton name and spirit BUT — how poignant that the rotary hasn’t stayed alive in its own right. The latest 2004 YamaKawaHonduki 1000 cc 4cyl “superbikes” only now meet the specs of the 588 Roton’s final incarnation…
