The Norton Commando, a Norton-Villiers motorcycle was launched by the Norton Motorcycle Company in 1967 as a 750cc OHV, pre unit parallel twin.
The 1971 Fastback model with its iconic styling via the rear tail piece also featured the isolastic vibration control system and twin leading shoe front drum brake.
This is another pristine example of a total restoration by noted Norton expert Ron Baillie of Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada. Ron’s attention to detail and the extensive level to which he restores Norton’s mechanically and cosmetically has recently been recognized in a front cover feature article in Motorcycle Classics. Read more about Ron’s work.
Ron will routinely salvage and refinish original parts if perfect. All other parts are sourced in the UK and of the highest quality available. The Smiths instrument is the original (refurbished) it shows 9962 miles - which was on the original bike before rebuild. There are zero miles on this new restoration.
In addition to the work performed by Baillie (see an image of his sumary in the listing pics), the current owner purchased and installed two brand new Amal 932 carbs. The originals will be included with the machine. Note that the engine is fitted with a Combat head.
This matching number Fastback was started, tested and carefully decommissioned for showroom display by the current owner.
