Michael Bailey's Norton Project Bike

I bought it from behind a tool shed for $500 – just as it was getting ready to settle its basic elements back out into the earth. But despite the grime encrustation, ape-hangers, Harley back wheel, and pearl-white frame; the unexpected Marchand Equilux headlight gave it a glint in the eye and an air of possibility.
