Hinshaw Norton

Olivia and I stopped by Hinshaw today to get a look at the new Norton's and to see if they had a new Indian yet. I immediately saw the new Norton displayed in the from window. I'm ready to buy one...

 They had some other Norton's that were pretty nice too.

 I didn't have the cash on hand to pick up the Pre War Norton International but they had a nice selection of Norton merchandise so I figured I might go that route. Ultimately I really liked the Hinshaw Norton shirt they had. It looks a lot like the vintage Norton dealer shirts you see floating around. At $10 I had to have one but they didn't have one in my size so I asked the parts guy. He brought one in my size and GAVE it to me. Evidently they are planning to hand them out next weekend but it was a pretty cool thing to do anyway.

 I met John from Hinshaw at the South Sound VME meeting a few weeks ago and he seemed like a pretty good guy. I've been in Hinshaw twice now and was pretty impressed with the place both times. The staff is friendly. The vintage bikes are really cool. The store is well stocked, organized and clean. If I was gonna buy a new bike it's probably the first place I'd start looking.
