Lightweight / Ron Wood


This is the Ron Wood lightweight Norton, owned by Jamie Waters, and the archetype of retro flat track style. Anyone with a passing interest in flat track history will have heard of the legendary red big tube Nortons. Ron Wood built the first one around 1971 or 1972, and the second a few years later. Around the same time, he constructed this National-winning lightweight bike — which has a single-backbone, dual down tube frame designed to reduce weight. Jamie bought the lightweight from Ron directly, after they met at the Legend Of The Motorcycle show nearly ten years ago, where Jamie was showing his unrestored Ron Wood big tube Norton — via Bike EXIF
