I have had queries from a number of customers to ask if I am able to supply folding type kickstarters to fit upright and laydown Norton gearbox's of the 1930's-1950's? I already sell the more normal 'fixed' type as originally fitted to most roadgoing Norton models in the 1930's-40's (Item 0298), but they are often found to get in the way of your legs if you have any kind of rearward mounted footrests - as is often the case with Norton International's and the Racing International/Manx type footrest mounting.
So in response I am now pleased to be able to supply these folding kickstarters, which have the Norton spline and a slight crank to them so they should not foul the exhaust pipe. Even more pleasing - is that these kickstarts are genuine Andover Norton items, which are really high quality - and I am proud to now be a supplier of their items. As would be expected, high quality parts such as these are not cheap to manufacture, therefore the price is considerably greater than the rigid (offshore manufactured) type I also offer, but this is reflected in the more complex construction and quality of these items. I would highly recommend buying one of these in favour of the cheap and cheerful fixed type for all Nortons - including the SV/OHV/OHC . . . it is the type I will fit to my 1930's road Inter - well worth the extra cost
