Dave Aldana Norton Factory Rider

 Aldana was making Norton history and not without the mechanical genius of Nick Deligianis
who bolted together the fastest and most reliable Norton's around. He built both Dave's Flat Track and Road Racing power plants. This is an Ad in an Ascot Program in '73.
 Here is a great photo from Dave's personal file. This butt pucker courtesy of Chuck Palmgren who has cut him off at the Colorado Mile 1974. I think he saved it.
