Description

1968 NORTON Commando 750cc Fastback
Excellent condition. Runs & rides as good as it looks.
This is the first iteration of the Commando Fastback with the round tank badges.
In 1970 I started riding Nortons in the Ozark Mountains, nd I have been riding one of various models ever since. My present Norton I acquired from the Norton Owners Club in Canada and imported it. I have a clear Arkansas title & registration.
Since I've had the bike, ew Amal carbs have been fitted along with new Avons, peedo cable, nd fresh dark green paint (the bike came from Canada in a flawless red color, ut I'm not fond of riding anything painted red). The only issue is that the 4:1 ratio of the tachometer is matched to a tachometer drive of 2:1 ratio, hich results in the instrument reading twice the number of rpms. To compensate, have reduced the price from $10,500. All else on the machine is functional and in order as it should be.
This machine I had set up for the duration, ut at this point in life I find that the Commando is too long, oo high, nd too heavy for me. If anyone has a 1960-1963 standard Norton 600cc Dominator model 99 of like condition, would be happy to swap even.
You are welcome to come by for a test ride. Any form of payment is acceptable or upon pick-up here in Hot Springs National Park.
Shipping is also possible per buyer's preferences and expense.
Merry Christmas!
