Norton, one of the most famous motorcycle marques, were founded in 1898 and up until the early 1970's were a very successful company both on the road and the track with multiple race wins, especially at the Isle of Man TT. By the mid 1980's their star had waned and production ceased. In late 2008, Stuart Garner, bought the rights to Norton and re-launched the company at Donington Park producing a new 961cc Norton Commando. Once the company was trading successfully they decided to celebrate by building a limited edition machine using the Commando's 961cc engine but harking back to the cafe racers of the 1960's. The Domiracer, designed by Simon Skinner, houses the parallel twin engine in a modern 'Featherbed' frame using a Spondon rear arm, Ohlin shocks and Brembo brakes matched with carbon fibre and polished alloy. One feature you cannot help to notice is the welded and polished alloy, cafe racer style tank. This example, believed the first to be offered at public auction anywhere in the world, is number 45 of the 50 produced and was bought direct from Norton as Andy was involved with the carbon fibre on the bike. It only has the test/delivery mileage on the clock and comes with both race and road exhausts (the race have decibel killer inserts that can be removed, reducing the level from 127 db to a believed 110 db). Destined to be a future classic from the moment it was built, the initial run of 50 were quickly sold so the Dominator SS was then produced, again in limited run. Sold with the V5C, SORN notification, original invoice (dated 01/05/2014), paperwork, a Norton paddock stand, Norton bike cover, a modified number plate mounting (original included), road exhaust and brackets, alternative clutch, brake handles and fuel filler cap and has Datatool Tracking.
