Norton Atlas 750 http://tenwheel.com/imgs/a/b/e/h/u/1965_norton_atlas_750_11_lgw.jpg litle later than this 1965 Norton + Triumph does make sense
Bye Bye Birdie
Actually the blue Norton(x2) with the red seat is a "650 Manxman" The gold Norton that Birdie is riding is an Atlas. I'm sorry it's Conrad Birdie, and the 650 Manxman are 1961 models. you are correct Atlas didn't exist in 63 lol The Nortons in the movie were provided by Paul Collins, father of Bo Derek. He was a motorcycle dealer in Redondo Beach, CA. His Continental Imports opened in 1960, and claimed to be the largest Honda dealer in Southern California. He also sold Norton, Royal Enfield, and Indian. Link to "www.torranceca.gov"
You are both wrong. First of all the 650 Manxman bikes in the photos are 1962 models, the Manxman was sold as both a 1961 and a 1962 model, the 1962 model had ball-ended control levers as these do. Secondly the Atlas did exist in 1963 because the first year it was made and sold was as a 1962 model, hundreds were sold in 1962 and thousands through the end of the 1960s.
Norton Atlas Royal Enfield interceptor? More like a sixties BSA or Norton twin, see the chromium-plated gearbox... more Norton than BSA Norton, c'est clair. Atlas? Dominator? Chaiplus...
duh see tank badge NORTON lol
Gideon's Way EP: 1.25
I think all three bikes with dropped bars are Nortons and the middle bike is a Triumph. Norton Roadholder forks on the three...Rockers wouldn't have swapped them out....Nortons
Norton Atlas types, one with clubman bars, the other with clip-ons.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
1st on the right seems the most interesting to me ... nothing for the dustbin on the right: Norton Atlas, Indian Chief (red fenders as is also the blue one on left) and a Vincent Comet C
That is not a Norton Atlas, it is a Norton 88ss that has been kicking around Hollywood for the last few years. The Atlas was not offered in two-tone paint and did not come with a siamese exhaust system. I have three 1962 Model 88 Nortons along with several others of various years.

Norton Atlas Is it necessarily an Atlas? Could be one of the smaller models maybe?
