Wonder if an updated Interceptor is in the future?

Yeah, thought about an Interceptor when I bought my first Norton (P11, with road tires and legal exhaust), and it really didn't matter, it only lasted 6 days due to a 35 mph sudden head on with a cager that crossed a double yellow stripe and totalled it.  At times its a good thing to have a hard head.  At least in the days before the helmet laws.  Broken arm, concussion, contusions, etc., etc., but nothing life threatening.  Sure did like the looks of the old Manx's and Interceptor's engines, and oh yeah, and those VINCENTSSSSSSS!  Why can't modern efficient stuff at least LOOK good like the old stuff.

Certainly true, and I guess if my back could handle it I'd have a Thruxton in BRG.  I guess I'm more in tune with comfort these days, but oh my are some of the classics fun to look at.  Maybe I have the collector gene without the wherewithall to fulfill it.
