Norton P11 750cc Scrambler(1967)

The Norton P11 was built as a U.S. market only machine mating the powerful 750cc Atlas engine with a frame that resembled the “Metisse” frame built by the Rickman brothers. Wedded to the Matchless forks and other running gear, it produced a ride quite unlike any scrambler built at the time.

With a power output of 52 _ horsepower the machine was quite a potent race bike (when street gear was removed) and won several desert, scrambles, and TT races with capable riders like Mike Patrick and Jack Simmons.

Unfortunately, the relatively high price tag of $1339 and Norton's lack of popularity compared to BSA and Triumph offerings from England led to poor sales. The P11 was quickly replaced in 1968 by the P11A that was more of a street going machine with low pipes and more weight to lower the cost.

This rare machine is owned by the Early Years of Motocross Museum and was meticulously restored by Don Harrell. Please enjoy!
