It’s also interesting to note just how universal and tough the Commando motor is. The Norton fared well on road racecourses around the world, including the Isle of Man. The late Sixties were a tough time for the British motorcycle industry. Buyouts and mergers were happening left and right, yet despite being the illegitimate child of a shotgun marriage between Associated Motor Cycles and Villiers, the Norton Commando became one of the most successful motorcycles ever produced in Britain. Best known is the Roadster and Interstate models, built starting in 1971 until production ceased in 1975. But between the first Fastback Commando of 1968 and the final electric-start bikes of 1975, the factory-built a number of short-run variants that are now highly collectible
