Francis Beart Norton 500 1967 IOM TT

 Buxom Beauty
 Mal Uphill lapped at 100.02 and was set to get second in the Senior chasing Hailwood on the Honda 4. A valve snapped off and the bike seized and ended his run and Bearts who conceded the Singles day was done. After many years as the ultimate Norton Manx tuner, he parked them and they were never seen to be competitive again in the big class on the Island.

350 and 500. Oh, those tanks !
