Classic Bike February 2022

by Classic Bike team |

There’s a Norton theme to the February issue of Classic Bike, with the magazine reflecting on anniversaries of notable achievements by bikes wearing the company’s famous logo and the men who created and rode them. There’s a rare original 1932 Norton International, the Manx that won the 1952 Daytona 200 on the old beach course, how the 650SS and Atlas came into being in 1962, a road test of a well-travelled Commando with a Combat engine and 86,000 miles on the clock, and how the John Player Norton race team got the factory back on track.

There’s also an insight into the motorcycle racing career of 1930s ace Tazio Nuvolari before he achieved worldwide fame in cars – and a rapid return to the present day with a BSA Super Rocket and a Dot scrambler, both restored by the youthful pair behind modern day ‘inappropriate race’, the Malle Mile.
