2017 "Blue Monday" 1962 Matchless G50

After leaving the publishing industry, NYC Norton founder Kenny Cummings turned to
restoring motorcycles and building custom Seeley-framed race and road bikes. “Blue Monday”
was built specially for Custom Revolution and is representative of NYC Norton’s racing bikes,
which differ only slightly from their road bikes. Cummings’s race-oriented but vintage-inspired
work is a bridge between the classic café racer era and today’s Alt.Custom scene, as it fits
comfortably within both camps.
