Viscount

From Graces Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Viscount was a motorcycle produced in 1960.

This was a brief revival of the Australian Norvin - a 1953 marriage between a 998cc Vincent V-twin engine and a Norton Featherbed frame, known as the Viscount. It used the wide-line frame, Norton forks and a Manx front hub.

Lack of demand brought the project to an end.
