Welcome to the Southern California Norton Owners Club!

Hi Everyone,

It is with deep regret that we acknowledge the Norton Owners Club has lost a longtime club enthusiast this month.  Very unfortunately, Jim Armantrout, 78, had a fatal accident while fixing a roof, succumbing to injuries April 17th.  We all remember Jim and his brother Don on many rides with the club.  He thought so highly of our group and its riders that he even shared his enjoyment with his adventurous granddaughter, Athena, as she experienced several of our rides on the back of his bike.  Jim leaves behind a son, Kenneth, and daughter, Cheri. His ashes will be carried forth with the sea as his journey continues.  Give Jim a thought or two the next time you are on a beautiful two lane back road on your bike.

Rest in Peace Jim..
