This rare Commando is one(1) of four(4) bikes for sale from my collection, nd is currently part of a two(2) month exhibit ending on 9/5/16 at The Stony Brook Museum Educational and Cultural Center in Stony Brook, ew York. It was purchased by me in 1995 as a basket case andunderwent a 100% total restoration entailing every nut and bolt in the machine. The engine has been totally rebuilt (cases split) and rebuilt with all new internals, uper-blend bearings, istons, ings, alves, uides, prings, tc.. Internals were balanced, oyer electronic ignition, ew clutches, ransmission rebuilt, prockets renewed, orks rebuilt with new seals and progressive springs. Newer version vernier adjustable isolastic suspension, ew rims with S/S spokes, ew exhaust pipes and mufflers, uch re-chroming---a total rebuild/restoration that took many hours.

All parts were purchased from Walridge Motors, anada--the 'source' for OEM parts for British bikes. First registered in1999 by meit has beenridden every year (for a few hundred miles) and continuously maintained. The original fuel tank is fiberglass and on the shelf with a correct alloy tank currently installed (shown in pictures) due to alcohol additives in gasoline. New Amal 930 Concentrics installed in June of 2016. This bike is quick, ight, ndhandles wonderfully and has a great sound---it is worthy of the 'Snortin Norton' nickname.
