White motorcycles have been in production since 1990, from Norman White of Hampshire.

Having built up his business producing special parts for Norton twins and Commandos, as well as carrying out specialist work on these models, White went on to produce complete machines of that type.

In effect they were Norton twin specials built to the customer's specification.

  • 1975 Norman White/Rex Butcher won the Thruxton 500 mile race on a White Norton Commando.


  • Note: Norman White has his own web site. [1]
