FFotW: 1974 Norton JPS, $13000


fuelfed-norton-jps Posted 3.17.15 .

Editor Note 3.19.15: Well we tried, but another one fell into the void. The level of civil decency is definitely slipping downward.

Ok, on this FFotW we are going to be selfish and are going  after this one ourselves. Do your research on what the Norton John Player Special is and you’ll realize it’s rarity. In a collector market based on the philosophy of “I have one and you’ll never find another” to raise price bar, this JPS does just that. Not the fastest bike in it’s day, nor great track-cred, just original retro-racer cool looks and ultra low production numbers. You will only see one of these at Mecum or Amelia, not eBay and certainly not CL.

    Cool as hell. Love motorcycles but my wife would kill me if I went after one. And she lets me get away with a lot.

    Good luck!
