    Dynamite photos. Love the pipes. Curious about the luggage assembly. Where did it come from and how is it mounted? Still waiting on a dual seat Sport. The dealer assures me before the summer but still vague. Sigh

    Sorry for the late response. I've had my bike since last November. Runs great!

    RACK HOME MADE - A rack for the Dual seat is easy as there is a thick steel plate to bolt to. The single seat has plastic, so it worked out good as this bike is a dual seat.

    Thanks, Richard. I got impatient and bought the Sport single in black. I still have a Bonnie for the Missus to hop on so I'm ok. I'm loving the bike. It has some real grunt with the optional pipes.

    I realize that this thread is very old but the topic is sort of similar to my question. How is the resale value of a Dominator in the USA? I'm giving some serious thought to unloading my car and buying a new Dominator. Both of them are pretty similar in price. Do you think it may be like a Ducati/Triumph/Aprilia where the value drops considerable once it's off the showroom floor? I have never bought a bike new for this reason but I doubt I will find a used Dominator anywhere near to me. Should I just buy a new MV Agusta instead because they maintain their value pretty well? (Not meant to upset the Norton folks.) I appreciate your thoughts and opinions.

    It’s a good question sir.

    My thoughts are that it would indeed drop. I think it has too whilst new ones are still available.

    But they won’t be available for ever, and prices will start to climb rapidly, so it’s definately a good candidate for ‘future classic’ status IMHO.

    So, it’d be a poor short term investment, but a good long term one I think.

    I hope you're right because I'm doing my best to hang onto bikes for great lengths of time. I'll have my '71 commando for many many many more years. I'm also wondering if Norton (UK) Ltd. will sh*t the bed in a few years and parts will be very difficult to find. Thanks for your response.
