Norton Motorcycle

"Most motorcyclists love to spend their Sunday mornings taking off the cylinder head and re-seating the valves."
Donald Heather, director of Norton, 1957.

Quoted by Bert Hopwood in 
Whatever Happened to the British Motorcycle Industry?

Hopwood was chastised by the director for designing an advanced 250cc engine with one-piece cylinder .
