Introduced for 1961 at Earls Court, the Navigator was the first bike to be built on the Norton production line at Plumstead. With the 349cc model, the firm addressed almost all of the 250’s troubles and produced a very fine lightweight four-stroke twin. The cylinders were made of a single casting, to give better oil retention, although the cylinder heads continued to be separate. TT racer Harold Daniell raced a standard Norton Navigator at Silverstone, a recorded speed of 101 mph was achieved on a standard Navigator with a tweaked carburettor.

This standard specification example was despatched from the factory to Horsman Motorcycles of Liverpool, and purchased by H. W. Dulson of Birkenhead in April 1962. This matching numbers Norton was subject to older restoration, though as has not been used recently will no doubt benefit from some recommissioning This Navigator is supplied with a historic V5C and dating letter to confirm original specification.
