This is a solid 1974 norton commando (850 not 750 as the title implies couldn't change it) roadster, his bike has hipster and vintage appeal, pgraded electronics, onverted to negative ground for increased reliability, ri spark ignition $$$, hree phase alternator, ri spark single coil, nti sump valve, ustom seat, ood tires Kenda, ood running has a mean sound to it with the dunstal type mufflers... It is a survivor that will rival the best vintage bikes in any bike night competition. Has 54,242 on the odometer, t marks its territory with oil from time to time as is common with Norton's it does much better on center stand or just being level. This bike is extremely fun and makes you feel like a champion. I am selling my beloved due to a Right Knee injury and kick starting it with my left has become awkward. It starts in one to two kicks always, ust tickle the carbs... If she sells I will be sorry to see her go I have always been a Norton guy for some reason. I cannot ship this bike so local pick up only. I bought it from a guy in Minnesota in 2006 who had 20 triumphs andone Norton, esaid he did a lot of work to it. I was 26 so I don't know if it was restored or if any work was done to the engine, orry. I know that in the time I've owned it the electronics were fickle so I had it rewired to negative ground and put in top of the line electronics. It is now extremely reliable no longer chasing smoke from shorts. This bike is not of the show room floor but is a great stock Norton with little subtle upgrades to look see picts. Thanks any questions ask.
