Norton Electric Starter Conversion Kit

Norton Electric Starter Conversion 

Norton electric starter conversion kit from Alton, via The Classic Bike Experience. 

Norton specialist The Classic Bike Experience (CBE) in Essex, Vt., is now carrying electric starter conversion kits for pre-MkIII Norton Commandos. The kit is made by Alton in France, who are well-known for their alternator upgrades for Vincents, Velocettes and other British bikes, and includes a new inner primary cover, alternator, starter, wiring and solenoid. A battery upgrade is typically required. Owners can install the kit themselves (estimated time is three hours) or have it done by CBE. $2,150 (est.).
