The Norton Piggybank is made using the same metal shaping techniques Omega Racer uses to build their range of aftermarket bodywork. Taking around 20 hours to complete each piggy bank tank is meticulously hand-shaped from an aluminium sheet. Just like your motorcycle’s fuel tank, the piggy bank features a tunnel on the underside that’s welded in place. To gain access to your saving,s sitting over the filler hole is a handmade screw-on cap that features a knurled edge and a slot for inserting coins.
