1974 Norton 850 Commando


For the riding I do, Canada to the tip of Baha, the best bike built


Rebuilt engine at 125,000 for the fun and reliability.

And at 200,000 for bigger bore .060 over.

General Comments:

I lay down on the machine. My feet crossed over the tail light. Very comfortable. Steer with my lean, hands on the shocks.

Runs circles around Harlie's. But they can out pull me on straight lines.

New seat in 1976 from Woods Custom Seats, Sacramento CA.

Too much primary chain stretch until it settles in.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
