- With a few subtle modernizations, the 1960 Norton Dominator De-Luxe 600 provides a remarkable riding experience.
- A simple twin leading shoe conversion to the front brake gives excellent braking in modern road conditions.
- The Norton badge was tired by 1960, with the company having fallen from being one of the world's great motorcycle manufacturers to a veritable state of decay.
- The Norton Dominator had a gearbox separate from the engine.
- The Dommie's engine still remains handsome to this day.
- Young riders were largely unimpressed by the pressed steel side panels when the Dominator De-Luxe 600 was released.
- The Dommie's saddle is wide and comfortable, allowing for an all day ride two-up with no issue.
- Though still expensive, Dommie's are relatively affordable in the classic motorcycling realm. Just be ready to fork over $10,000 or more for a fully restored specimen.
- The "Roadholder" forks were an industry standard in 1960.
