The current owner of this 1973 Norton Commando acquired it in 2007, preserving it in storage for over a decade. In 2020, a two-year transformation in the spirit of a café racer was completed. Powering this remarkable machine is a modified 872cc parallel twin engine, paired with a four-speed transmission. The engine features 79mm Hepolite pistons, a Hepolite camshaft, Kibblewhite chromoly pushrods, an Alton electric starter, a Tri-Spark electronic ignition, Motogadget electronics, and a dual exhaust system equipped with custom reverse-cone megaphone mufflers.
This bike showcases polished alloy bodywork mounted on a black powder-coated Isolastic frame. It boasts an array of additional enhancements, including a Colorado Norton Works (cNw) primary belt-drive conversion, a six-piston front disc brake, an NYC Norton triple clamp assembly, Progressive Suspension fork springs, a Norman Hyde fork brace, Koni shocks, Akront alloy rims, LED lighting, a brown leather bump seat, and Tommaselli clip-on handlebars.
