Into the Archives Part 4 - Michael Dunlop

Next up from the archives - back to 2014 & this special one we painted for Michael Dunlop riding his Dad's Norton in the Classic TT

Eleven time TT Race winner Michael Dunlop rode his father Robert’s Rotary Norton in the 'Joey Dunlop Road Racing Legends - The Rivals Parade Lap

The machine Michael rode was the same machine his father rode in 1990, notching a Norton double in the North West 200 and also finishing third in the F1 TT of that year. Michael completed the tributeto his father by wearing specially created replica leathers and helmet.

Michael put in a 109mph lap from a standing start on his late father’s ex- works Norton Rotary race machine which is now owned as part of the National Motorcycle Museum collection.

I think the photo credits of Michael are to Simon Crellin but open to correction on that
