A GUIDE TO THE POSTWAR 1945 THROUGH 1963 NORTON WORKSHOP MANUALS AND PARTS LISTS FOR THE SINGLE CYLINDER 16H, Big 4, 18, 19R, 19S, 50 & ES2.

After the war ended in 1945, Norton resumed production of their civilian line of motorcycles and they also began publishing appropriate workshop manuals and parts lists. Unfortunately, there were numerous ‘editions’ of these publications and, while they identified the models they covered, the workshop manuals rarely identified the years they covered. Ultimately, this can lead to confusion regarding the selection of the appropriate publication for a particular year of Norton motorcycle.

WORKSHOP MANUALS: Those published from 1945 up through 1960 were normally exclusive to a specific model. However, beginning in the 1960’s, a series of workshop manuals were published that combined the data for both the single and twin cylinder models. Starting with part number P101, followed by P106 and finally P106/P this series of manuals was updated at various times through 1970, however, they continued to include the ES2 and 50 singles. When the 250cc Jubilee twin was introduced in 1958, the earlier ‘P’ series ‘combination’ workshop manuals were ‘superseded’ by the publication of a 1960-1970 factory ‘Lightweight & Heavyweight Twins’ manual, obviously, the single cylinder machines were no longer included. Owners of the single cylinder models may also find our ‘Book of the Norton 1932-1947’ (ISBN 9781588501288), ‘Book of the Norton 1938-1956’ (ISBN 9781588502063) and ‘Book of the Norton 1955-1963’ (ISBN 9781588501196) to be of interest.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Many of the reprints found on internet websites are from ‘bedroom sellers’ at enticingly low prices by individuals that really have no idea what they are selling. Many are nothing more than poor quality comb bound photocopies that are scanned and published complete with greasy pages and thumbprints and, as such, are deceptively described as ‘pre-owned’. In addition, they are often advertised for the incorrect series and/or model years of motorcycles. However, VelocePress.com has been publishing reprints of motorcycle and automobile manuals since 2003 and our publications have earned excellent reviews worldwide so you can be assured you are purchasing a quality product. ...$34.95 USD
