Congratulations to Jeb Bugaren of Placentia for winning Bike of the Month with his 1950 Norton Model 18.
Jeb rode the Model 18 down from Placentia with his son Austin on the back. It was quite a ride for Austin, because they avoided the Freeways and only took surface streets.
Appearently this bike was left for dead, burned in the desert. The previous owner resurected it and sold it to Jeb in 1987 as a runner with many wrong parts.
Jeb restored it to the current condition over the last 20 years.
See all the pictures in our November Gallery. Thank you Jeb for bringing it to the meet.
