"build in the light of experience"
Norton's featherbed frame does not need an introduction. When it first appeared in the early 1950s, the standards for handling and road location were immediately set to a new level and this famous design has since been used as a basis for numerous "specials". Icon motorcycles has produced a replica of the original "wideline" version based on an original factory drawing. The featherbed frame, a double cradle frame with a wasps waist, the Roadholder fork and swing rear suspension, built by the Irishman McCandless is the legend of the British motor industry. With astonishing response to the stunning features of this frame at the time. From the top in the ball head Two parallel Reynolds 531 tubes in chrome molybdenum steel, toward the front of the block to bend down to behind the gearbox, they made a wide 90 degree bow up. The two loops of the frame were connected to different panels with cross links
For the straight-ahead stability of the assembly, the top of the head with the upper cross joint of the frame and the cylinder head was secured by a solid steel plate. These types of British frames with sublime properties form the basis of each "Icon" motorcycle
The motor heart of the Icon motorcycle is formed by a Triumph engine. 900 cc, 69hp and 69NM. The last real brute standing twin with a 360 degree crankshaft guarantees a unique motor character. The main features that a real British pub racer had to have at that time should not be lost and guarantee the sentiment of yesterday.
Quality and exclusivity is the appearance of every part of the motorcycle. These two characteristics run like a red wire through the design. One of the last motorcycles in the world is hand built, each Icon motorcycle is assembled by hand to meet the highest standards.
In each section you feel the British industry representative. The two tone colors, colored in the British racing green colored components, the short aluminium circuit tank and the swept back exhaust curves let you desire the British era of yesterday.
