the gold on is left hand shaft ,had to enlarge photo to see it.
The Gold one is speculated to be the center bike after Norm sold it. It was built from an Indian with shaft drive. It had no transmission, just a clutch and direct drive. You can see the shaft flange in the pic. It would be much easier to push around with the shaft removed for shows rather than holding in a clutch lever.

The bike obviously was photographed at a show. I suspect Mitch is correct.

I met my wife as a blind date to go motorcycle riding. I had a 62 Norton.

The dates I had that weren't blind never went out with me twice.

I don't think there is a question going on so I'll just stick my nose in with a query of my own.
What is this and what do you use it for. I dug it out of my Old Man's Tool Box

Looks like it's used to hold spark plug wires.

wazzit?

I think it might have something to do with spreading an inner tube to put a patch on it.
