Here is the Norman as it arrived to us last year. Still on the original Dunlop tyres, they disintegrated a soon as we tried to remove them from the rims.

Will be upgrading to a 26"wheel set for this one. I laced an alloy rim to a SA AW 3 speed hub for the rear. Forgot to grab a pic, but the 26x1.75 tyres fit perfectly in the frame and fork. View attachment 192392
Do the breaks fit with the 26 1.75 I've always gone with 700c . I have a raliegh colt the.75 would look awesome in

I picked her up a really nice used b67s Brooks.
Will suit this British beauty perfectly

I used to live in Ashford, after the factory had shut down. There was still a good bike shop there, near the former factory gates, with a Norman bike as a window display. It was always a pleasure to visit.

Hahaha, well yes. Got the call Friday it's ready to collect from blasting. And then tested positive with covid Saturday. Now isolating until it passes.
Then I can pick up the project where I left off.

Get well soon so you can GetToBuilding
