Norton Dominates

A 1954 Norton Dominator Model 7, which spent much of its life in Uganda, is entered into the Charterhouse specialist classic & vintage motorcycle auction on 9th March.

“It never ceases to amaze me where clients acquire their motorcycles from.” Commented George Beale. “Over the decades I have sold motorcycles from all over the world but never one which originated from Uganda!”

The owner of the motorcycle came across the bike whilst working abroad and repatriated the Norton Dominator from Uganda in 1998.

He continued to live and work abroad but entrusted the Dominator to Bryon Cooper of Dragon Motorcycle Services in 2002 to undertake a total restoration. With the restoration completed, costing £8,000, it was not until 2006 when the owner returned to England and registered the Norton.

Sadly before he could use and enjoy the freshly restored Model 7 he was called abroad on business again, returning home this time in 2016. With other motorcycles in his collection he only managed to put 96 miles on the bike since 2016 and owning several other machines has decided now it the time to part with this motorcycle.

Complete with tailor made indoor monogrammed cover, manual, parts book, photos and history file of registration, dating documents and invoices going back to its purchase in Uganda in 1998, this beautifully restored 1954 Norton Dominator Model 7 is estimated at £8,500-9,500 in the Charterhouse auction on 9th March at the Haynes International Motor Museum, Somerset.
