Sellers original description:

The bike is stunning and underwent a total restoration from 1996 - 2000 and has covered only 475 since. She was MOT'd from 2000-2004 and the records show that she was barely used between these dates. I have bundles of paperwork relating to the restoration with a receipts for parts totally nearly £9,000. The sidecar was brand new in 1997 and cost £3300. The GP Jubilee is still made by Watsonian and now retails at £5495(+ fitting) - check the Watsonian Sidecar website. The sidecar is like brand new and comes with full set of covers. The main hood that you can see in one of the photos still has the paper on it that protects the windows. I also have 2 dating certificates from the Norton Owners Club which helps build the heritage of this bike. What these certificates illustrate is that this bike has TOTALLY MATCHING NUMBERS and this includes engine, frame, gearbox and forks (yes, the forks were stamped when built too!). This is a totally unmolested machine and I cant help but think that are simply cant be many Model 77's with this vintage. The dating certs also show that the bike was built on the 27th September 1956 and was dispatched to Myers Motorcycles. Engine Number is 70293 M15 Frame Number is M15 70293 Gearbox Number N2482 Forks 5794 The gentleman I bought this bike off fitted this bike with hydraulic clutch and brakes and a Norton Commando belt driven Clutch upgrade. All of which are sensible upgrades particularly with te sidecar fitted. Registration is KSL184 which is non transferable. The Model 77 Dominator is a very rare bike in itself and was only produced from 1956/7. It was essentially a single downtube ES2 chassis with a Dommie 99 engine. Only a few hundred of these bikes were every produced. Starts and runs great and a real piece of British motorcycle history. Superb overall condition.
