1928 Norton CS1 in action

1928 Norton CS1 at Goodwood
This picture is annotated on reverse, "R. A. Beecroft Goodwood 14th April 51 1928 Norton 490".

In 1951 it is as likely that the bike was still being used in anger at a time when clubmans racers were usually modified road machines or older model pukka racers. Proper made to race current machines were way beyond the means of most enthusiasts. Just possible though that it is a very early vintage race. If anyone can spread any light please get in touch.


  1. This is Roland Arthur Beecroft (b 1913, d 2000). He was an active member of the VMCC and certainly racing this bike in 1951 (and much later)

  2. In fact, I have this bike!
