Norton Commando description

 
1968 NORTON Commando 750cc Fastback
Excellent condition. Runs & rides as good as it looks.
 

This is the first iteration of the Commando Fastback with the round tank badges.

In 1970 I started riding Nortons in the Ozark Mountains, and I have been riding one of various models ever since. My present Norton I acquired from the Norton Owners Club in Canada and imported it. I have a clear Arkansas title & registration.

Since I've had the bike, new Amal carbs have been fitted along with new Avons, speedo cable, and fresh dark green paint (the bike came from Canada in a flawless red color, but I'm not fond of riding anything painted red). The only issue is that the 4:1 ratio of the tachometer is matched to a tachometer drive of 2:1 ratio, which results in the instrument reading twice the number of rpms. To compensate, I have reduced the price from $10,500. All else on the machine is functional and in order as it should be.

This machine I had set up for the duration, but at this point in life I find that the Commando is too long, too high, and too heavy for me. If anyone has a 1960-1963 standard Norton 600cc Dominator model 99 of like condition, I would be happy to swap even.


You are welcome to come by for a test ride. Any form of payment is acceptable or upon pick-up here in Hot Springs National Park. 
Shipping is also possible per buyer's preferences and expense.

Merry Christmas!

Prince William The Duke Of Ducs And Other Motorcycles

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, visited Britain’s largest motorcycle show, Motorcycle Live, at the National Exhibition Center in Birmingham. The visit saw the Duke astride numerous motorcycle models including UK icons Norton and Triumph as well as a Ducati 1199 Superleggera (one of the few men able to afford the $70,000 rarity). During his visit Prince William enjoyed a display of off-road riding – one of nine opportunities for visitors to ride at Motorcycle Live, eight of which are inside the halls of the NEC. He also met Dean Linehan, exhibitions director of MCI Exhibitions, the company that organizes the annual motorcycle exhibition.

Happy 50th Hizzy

On the 11th January 1962, Steve Hislop was born in Hawick, Scotland. Today would have been his 50th birthday, but he was tragically killed in a helicopter accident in 2003. Hizzy was a genius on a motorbike and when he was happy with everything around him, he was amongst the best in the world.

The question is: is this Stacey?

Sex sells, right? So when you're trying to sell your bike, a picture of a pretty girl will fool anyone into buying anything. Or maybe not.
