Ton Up NC Nortons...

Marcus' Commando (top) w/ Brian's Commando.
The unapproachable, the roadholder, no matter what you call them, Nortons have long been a part of Ton Up NC, in fact you might say that 10 years ago it was a 1974 Norton Commando that started the club. Case in point, in 2003 club co-founder, Patman, heard familiar sound of a Norton roar by the local Pizza shop in Raleigh and had to know who was riding it. He chased down what turned out to be Marcus on his 1974 Commando and the two immediately bonded over their affinity for British motorcycles and made a pact to form a local chapter of the International Ton Up Club. And so it was done.  Since that meeting, other Nortons have joined the Ton Up NC family, here's a list:

Marcus: 1974 Norton Commando 850 Roadster
Eric G: 1974 Norton Commando 850 Roadster
Eric P: 1971 Norton Commando 750 Roadster
Brian: 1974 Norton Commando 850 Roadster
Chad: 1966 Norton Atlas
