"A Detailed record of tuning a Featherbed Norton ES2 500cc single motorcycle.Technical information specifications and hints."
Phase 1 Objective:-
To develop a good looking Featherbed ES2 cafe racer, with better than standard performance while still reliable and low maintenance. This Phase is complete and Phase 2 is under way.
All pictures are "clickable" and produce a larger image.
The idea had been formed for many years. Take the mothballed F750 Classic racer that I campaigned in the mid 1980's - a Featherbed Commando - and insert a single cylinder ES2 engine.
Whilst this is my Model 19, a 600cc single, few people can tell them apart from the ES2 and Model 50. Follow this link for the difference!
