This is the first of my collection to be posted on ebay.  There will also be XXXX MHR Ducati XXXX, XXXX Triumph Silver Jubilee Bonneville XXX (never started) and Michealson replica.  
The Norton Commando was direct result of the collapse of AMC (Associated Motor Cycles, Ltd) who owned Norton, Matchless & AJS, among others. AMC's stable of brands was acquired by Manganese Bronze Holdings, who also owned Villiers, and the new company was renamed Norton-Villiers. The Matchless & AJS lines were struggling, but Norton showed great promise. Thanks to the Featherbed, the Norton Dominator & Norton Atlas had earned reputation as fine-handling machines with good power. So, the decision was made to kill off the Matchless-AJS twins at the end of the XXXX model year & concentrating all resources on creating an entirely new motorcycle, an entirely new 'type' of motorcycle.
The result was the XXX Norton Commando, and became the first Superbike. The secret was the Isolastic Suspension. It freed engineers to extract all the power & revs out of the powerful twin. It was such resounding success that it was named Motorcycle News' "Motorcycle of the Year" years running. As most British bike enthusiasts know, the Commando was wildly successful, although Norton could never produce the volumes of bikes that Triumph did at the time. Demand outstripped supply, making them even more sought after. The mystique continues today as Commandos are more popular than ever with collector & enthusiasts. Motorcycle auctions bristle with various versions of the Norton Commando. They're certainly fast enough & modern enough to keep up easily with todays' traffic, making them an even better collectible. As with virtually all mass-produced Classic British Motorcycles, the Norton Commando is truly undervalued & underpriced in the marketplace. 
This is sensitively done lightly customized cafe-racer style Commando.  It has the aluminum tank, single seat, polished cases and polished/chromed accessories.  The motorcycle last ran in XXXX after the sympathetic restoration including complete engine and gauges rebuild, replacement of all rubber mounts and frame powder coat.  Clear Georgia title and keys.  Motorcycle is sold as is, no warranty implied or otherwise.  Buyer collects and is responsible for all shipping costs can help with pickup etc.  No returns.
