I have a good oppertunity in buying an old Norton and I'm a little worried, because I do not know the seller, and he tells me that there are no documents with the bike although engine & frame numbers match. I believe it's a 1955 model, concourse condition, but i want to ride it! I'm sure i can get an age related plate?...But...
How can I tell its not stolen??? Am i being a fool even considering the purchase?
