Wrong forum buddy. You're gonna need to get on some brit bike specific forums. However if you are selling, I'm interested. :)

No, Im buying, lol, the guy needs to sell due to a house payment. So I've always wanted a cafe racer, so I figured why not a Norton

Norton's aren't exactly known for reliability. If your wanting a cafe racer a Japanese Bike is a better choice. Norton's are neat, but parts are not common this side of the pond and electronics have never been the strong suit of the brits.
