Here is our RRBBO17 entry 'Stormin Norman'
this is a father daughter build, with my daughter doing a lot of the work herself. The bike itself is a 1956 Norman, made in England, imported to Australia in the 70's. She wanted to keep as many of the original parts a possible, but modernising or upgrading in certain areas to make a practical rider.
26 x 1.75 alloy rims replace the 26x1 3/8 steel.
Longer reach alloy callipers to reach the new rims, with alloy levers to match. SA AW hub replaced the SA SW. New paint and re pop decals. Brooks leather saddle and grips. Plus Gold detailing. Ready to go for many more years to come.

Superbly beautiful bike, but the part that makes this build awesome is how excited your daughter was to get it!
BRAVO!
