I've owned the bike since summer 2010.When I purchased the bike, had a head to tail inspection done by John Stephens http://www.cyclecraftmotorcycles.com in NJ, the bike has been serviced annually there.
I wanted a trouble-free, AFE 1 kick bike...so I did the following after purchase based upon inspection: new fork tubes with seals, eneral carbs tuning, ew fr brake kit and custom cable, ew 2nd gear, ew ISO mounts, ew pistons and rings, ew handlebar mirrors,
In 2011 I had 2 new Avon 410 tires installed, ew throttle cables, nd anti wet sump internal modification done...I ride this bike weekly in-season on a thirty mile joy ride in Kinnelon/Tarrytown NJ...dependable, ight...just right.
Here's a video of the bike starting 1 kick (from July 2015): https://youtu.be/Vu_02Jv-17U
The bike is NOT councours. It is a dependable, afe, xcellent vintage Commando, meant to be ridden, ith a rare LR gas tank and great fastback looks.

Not working, eeds repair:
--speedo stuck at 50mph, iagnosed at the speedo drive itself--it's not the cable (that was replaced)
--headlight intermittent inoperable

Could be replaced:
--exhaust, unctional and good sound but looks tatty

I will happily allow a complete in-person inspection, PPI by a professional mechanic, nd I will assist with shipping from 07005. Happy to take additional pictures as requested. It's a great bike, n it's sweetspot.

Inquire about Aluma trailer--NOT INCLUDED in this auction.
