Norton's 500 twin appeared in the racing singles' Featherbed frame in November 1951. Initially for export only, the Dominator Model 88 was the first production Norton to feature the lightweight, race-proven chassis. Introduced for 1956, the 596cc 99 was outwardly identical. Endowed with greater power and higher gearing, enabling it to top the magic 'ton', the 99 retained all the excellent handling and steering characteristics associated with the Featherbed chassis. The model remained essentially unchanged, apart from gaining alternator/coil-ignition electrics for 1958, until dropped in 1962. This Dominator 99 has not been used for some years and will require re-commissioning and the customary safety checks before returning to the road. The Commando-type TLS front brake and twin Amal Concentric carburettors are worthy of note. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed.
