The Norton Commando is a motorcycle that even today, over 50 years after it was first introduced, lives on as one of the most iconic British motorcycles of all time. Designed around the best pieces developed for the Manx Norton production racer and the Norton Atlas with new concepts like Isolastic drive-line mounting, the Norton Commando excelled in every way.  The Commando – a bike that would go on to win Motor Cycle News “Machine of the Year” award for 5 successive years from 1968 to 1972.

This bike was made as a 71 model but was registered originally as a 72. Was probably a High-Rider originally and like most High-Riders  were easily converted to a Roadster. Has the Roadster  7″ headlamp but still has the High-rider fuel tank ( new excellent  reproduction roadster tanks are available from British motorcycle parts dealers) mileage shows  4100 miles and owner believes the mileage as actual. Presently it has new tires and tubes, new Boyer, new carbs, new head gasket, shortened centre stand, new shifter return spring. Owner only use non-methanol gas because the tank is fibreglass from a Hi-rider and owner have the original High Rider seat. Bike is located in Parksville on Vancouver Island.
