1958 Norton Dominator 99, 596cc. Registration number UVS 167 (non transferrable), Frame number 14N 78505. Engine number 78505.
Norton’s 500cc twin gained the race bred Featherbed frame in late 1951 and was named the Dominator 88. Introduced for 1956, the 596cc Dominator 99 was outwardly identical to the 88. The engine was taken out to 596cc and fitted with a new cylinder head giving 31bhp. The Featherbed frame and Roadholder forks made the 99 was a very desirable package.
Endowed with greater power and higher gearing enabling it to top 100MPH, it was eventually dropped in 1962.
UVS, a matching numbers machine, was reregistered with DVLA in 1994 by Kenneth Leech, he sold it to Frank Grant in 1995. By 2010 it was with Neil Hassall who had the magneto overhauled, a rewire, carb rebuild and general fettling undertaken. In 2013 he had its Historic Class enabled. Our vendor bought it in 2016.
A quality older restoration this Domi 99 presents very well and should need only minor recommissioning before road use.
Sold with the V5C amd some history.
