The Untouchable Norton is how racer Rem Fowler described his machine after winning the twin-cylinder class of the first TT in 1907. The company would use the phrase in advertising for the next 50 years. This book charts the history of one of the oldest marques in the world: both the glorious racing tradition and the production machines, from the first clip-on engines to the F1 rotary superbike. Interviews with those closely involved (including James Norton's daughter Grace, who kindly provided original documents and photographs reproduced here for the first time) make this the definitive account of a key contribution to motorcycle history.
