Description
Lot #48 - Tastefully custom-designed Norton 850 Commando that is truly a one of a kind. The Norton Commando was a British Norton-Villiers motorcycle with an OHV pre-unit parallel-twin engine produced by the Norton Motorcycle Company from 1967 until 1977. Initially it had a 750cc displacement, actually 745cc. In 1973 it became a 850cc displacement, actually 828cc. It had a HEMI-type head similar to all the OHV Norton engines since the early 1920s. During its 10 years of production, the Commando was popular all over the world. In the United Kingdom it won the Motor Cycle News “Machine of the Year Award” for five straight years. As the original manufactures tag indicates, this bike was built in March 1973. Although the build date was 1973, here in the U.S., bikes were often titled in the year they were sold, rather than the model year the factory produced them. This bike is titled as a model year 1974. The tag number matches the engine number. This machine was purchased from the previous owner as a very original bike. It was then treated to a nut-and-bolt professional restoration. The vision of the restoration was to keep it mostly factory original with some custom features that would set it apart from the rest. Some of the custom features include a black powder-coated frame, black powder-coated rims with red pinstriping and Bucahan spokes, black ceramic exhaust pipes, custom Corbin seat, Mikuni carburetors and steel braided hoses. It was painted 2017 Crystal White Pearl Tri Coat with black letters, which looks absolutely beautiful. The original 828cc engine was completely rebuilt and runs great. The engine is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. It only has 5 test miles since completion and is in show-quality condition throughout. From the MS Classic Cars Collection.
