This is a high quality facsimile of the original Norton 1925 Spare Parts Catalog, but printed in A4 format - to give additional clarity. This has to be rarest of all Norton Spare Parts Lists - and covers all Flat Tank Side Valve models, as well as an additional section covering the very first OHV models - making this an interesting and excellent read, even if you are not lucky enough to own a Flat Tank model!
We print these pre-war catalogs in larger format as they did not use 'Exploded' diagrams - therefore A4 format makes the pictures much easier to see. We spend a great deal of time preparing these facsimiles, removing any flaws or fingerprints that have appeared over the years of use, so each diagram of parts is clear and legible and like new.
This is an extremely rare catalog, and the very clean original example I am fortunate to own is the only one I have ever seen available. I may be wrong - but to my knowledge this is the first Norton Spare Parts List produced, and in its 'forward' section it states it covers all models up to 1925.
As well as the Individual pages - which show clearly all chassis and engine parts in a lovely period font, it also has a page at the end of the picture section which shows a factory picture of each model available in 1925, which in itself is useful to any restorer of a flat tank model.
It is printed on high quality 100gm branded Xerox paper/card on a commercial quality printer. The cover is card, of similar thickness to the original - with the colour also similar to the original year. You may find other cheaper reproductions on Ebay, but I doubt they will be the same quality as ours and have the time spent cleaning them up from the originals as ours have - which is reflected in the price.
Finally, it should be noted that we also produce the corresponding 'Maintenance Instruction Manual' for models up to 1925 - Item 1151, which is of similar format and design to this spare parts catalog. However, if both bought together (see Item 1152) - they can be bought together at a small discount.
Even if you do not own a Flat Tank Norton, I would highly recommend this catalog as it makes a really interesting read and gives great insight into those early 1920's models.
