Welcome to the Northern California Norton Owners Club (NCNOC) website. The NCNOC is a group of about 150 Norton Motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy riding our vintage Norton motorcycles as much as we like getting together and talking about our motorcycling experiences. Our members are mostly from the San Francisco Bay Area and include Norton mechanics, aficionados, as well as individuals living the dream of owning and riding Nortons.


The NCNOC was started in San Francisco in the early 1970’s. It was the first American branch of the Norton Owners Club (NOC) of England and grew geographically larger to become the Northern California Norton Owners Club. Still a branch of the feature picNOC and also the International Norton Owners Association (INOA), it is one of the largest Norton clubs in the USA.

Club membership is open to Norton owners and all Norton motorcycle enthusiasts. The club has monthly rides, meetings on the second Thursday of every month (at rotating venues), an award winning monthly newsletter, and this website. It also has an online NCNOC discussion group.
