Norton Dominator Model 99.

The six photographs shown below all feature a 1958 Norton Dominator Model 99 motorcycle. A regular contributor to the site forum, Brian Bate (forum username Rotarybri) kindly sent over these photographs, they feature the Norton he purchased new in 1958. The first four photographs show the 'bike parked at the side of a road in its as-new condition, finished in Polychromatic Grey. By 1960, the date of the later two photographs, he'd repainted the 600cc Norton in British Racing Green (BRG). My thanks to Brian for sending these over, and agreeing for me to reproduce his Norton pictures here.

The re-painted Norton in 1960.

By 1960 the Norton had received its BRG re-paint and an RAC members' badge. The following two photographs show Brian and his girlfriend of the time (now wife), sat on their classic bike.

In 1958 the Dominator was available as the Model 88 (500cc), and the Model 99 (600cc).
