Norton: I travel around the Midlands for work and I was in Shenstone for the day. Right across from the vendor, was Norton Motorcycle Company. I had a quick tour of what is left of Norton. The lone employee was very gracious and informative. He told me how some lucky chap won the National Lottery, who was a Norton Motorcycle fan. He then purchased Norton and started to get the company back on solid footing, when he was stricken by cancer and died suddenly at a young age. When he died, the company did not have its paperwork all in order, so now it is in the court system trying to figure out who will own the company. A sad ending for a another British motorcycle company.
