working on primarily honda CB's the last few years, I've become quite versed in it's language. sure, there are varying dialects but never straying to far from it's core, and I find myself referencing manuals less and less.
today i started working on the norton and i find myself back to square one, trying to assemble this bike from a pile of parts and fasteners. half whitworth, half standard, and everything seems a little backwards. I suppose the start of any new language is going to be a little awkward at first.
