I got one of these emails from a Nigerian price once.
Sounds like a great opportunity.

Hope this is not out of place but for me first say i feel terrible about the workforce investors and ripped off customers i have also had similar happen to me but i have seen it all before with Norton. I bought my first Norton Commando in the 70s i still have it i also bought an Anniversary Cafe Racer and i will keep them both as I bought them because of a love of Norton This happened in the 70s due to poor management and underinvestment and in the 80s but this time if it is true about S G embezzling older people out of their pensions this is unforgivable. I do hope a new investor is found to carry the company on but not holding my breath.

Bids for the company via BDO had a deadline last Friday 21st, so hopefully we will hear something soon. Hard to believe though that some trade marks have been squirreled off somewhere overseas, wonder if BDO will fight that one.

Funny old set up though, will the buyer want to keep production where it is along with the Hall or would that be flogged off and who would want it with a load of noisy motorbikes behind it. All will be revealed in the coming weeks I guess.

The deadline was to register, not bid. No TM has been squirrelled away overseas, that is how the system works, you have to register it in each country. The owner is who registers it, either way a Judge would need to order the removal and seeing as seems BDO have no involvement with the TM's registered overseas then there is naff all they can do, even if judge decides that they are removed form his ownership they would not be BDO's they would go the UK crown, as per all proceeds of crime. A civil case could remove and re-assign or roll back, just like what happened in 2002 at the US court hearing.

Where’s Dannyy ??

Y’all remember Dannyy... he was our mystery poster that joined in Sept 2018, posted NOTHING for for nearly a year and a half, then posted 24 posts in 5 days in defence of Norton’s fleet of Aston Martins and demanded that anyone quoting any press reports about them posted the actual BDO report, which of course no one on here has.

Come back Dannyy, we miss you. And perhaps you could tell us who you really are ?!?

Either he has gone the way of the Aston Martins, or gone and joined the SG ranch in Botswana breeding animals for SG whilst driving around an Aston Martin –who knows????

See that Garner and wife have been fine dining at the Ivy in Harrogate, must be spending those deposits that he can't seem to pay back. Not thatlong ago ''I've lost everything'' but can still dine at the Ivy, so it looks like he has not lost everything. That popular he was spotted in quiet Harrogate, who'd thought that.

I wouldnt be surprised if he and his wife are fine dining every night, considering he appears to have not coperated with the auditors on where he has squirted away those millions. I presume he is still living in that county mansion at Donnington he acquired?

Yep, see the latest Superbike article. Looks like he was celebrating the start of a new venture with his wife in charge.
Seems that Metro and BDO have been had as predicted.
