I was looking at getting a SC or GT but I think this thread has convinced me to get a Thruxton or old Norton instead.
Read this article first.
Both the bikes you describe a good bikes, but with the Thruxton, it will not be as good a performer as the Sport Classic, and the Norton will be much pricier.
