Kinda demolishes the rest of their arguments, doesn't it....

Rest assured that my hear is still beating, and I know the definition of the word "history". Just for fun though, I looked it up in Websters dictionary. And guess what? The definition hasn't changed since I first learned it as a boy. To pretend like history still evolves is ridiculous. The idea that a Norton still exists today, doesn't mean it continues to change its history from when it was manufactured. Does it create more history in 2013? Yes, but that has nothing to do with what history happened with it in the 1960's.
Does the history of WW2 continue to evolve? This thread is ridiculous.
1962 is the last year of Bracebridge St. That was my only point of reference to the year 1962, which Rohan brought up in the first place.
wilkey113 said:Another fact is that a lot of Norton history did indeed stop in 1962, since AMC came into play, and the Bracebridge St. factory was closed. That's a pretty simple fact. But certainly not the end of the road for Norton. Although it wasn't much more than a decade later that the whole thing was done. So I'd certainly say that Norton history is indeed forever trapped in time. It's history stopped there.
This one is for Rohan since he likes to refer to it so much:
I assume you mean people that actually care about the facts, the details and have real admiration for the bikes and the era that they come from?
Are guys still building those and acting like they're historically correct?
