The Planx

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

SENT IN BY A READER, this photo shows a Manx Norton on dis­play in the Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum, UK, which is un­re­mark­able ex­cept that this Manx is made en­tirely from tim­ber. It is the re­sult of five years work by Barry Mil­ner, who says that al­though the oil can with the bike is faith­fully drip­ping oil, the Manx it­self has thus far re­mained oil tight. He also says it was built be­cause he has al­ways been ‘pin­ing for a Norton”. Oh dear.
