This is a very. very cool bike.

Up for your consideration is a 1974 Norton John Player 850.   (It's kind of like a Commando but my boss says don't call it that. )

From the sales brochure:

"Limited production run of this eye-catching luxury machine for the connoisseur.   Powered either by the high torque 850 unit to provide outstanding flexibility for the highways or by the 750 c. c. short-stroke high output engine as a base for competition.   White fibreglass fairings give the same aggressive appearance as the machines which carried the Norton name to yet one more victory in the 1973 Isle of Man T. T.   This model offers the ultimate in exciting high performance motorcycling combining style with comfort. speed and safety. "

"Features Twin double-dip headlamps with halogen light units if required; high output alternator with twin zener diode charge control.   Rear set footrests. brake and gearchange pedals; clip-on handlebars.   3½ gallon (15 litre) steel petrol tank.   Access to flip cap through quick-release cover in the styling.   Access to steel oil tank by lifting seat panel. "

This bike comes from a good a respectable home where it has accrued only 12. 98 original miles over its lifetime.

The bike is damn nice.

Everything is just about perfect.

Worth mentioning is the front rim which has some extremely minor pitting.   The rear shocks could probably use some chrome to come up to par for the rest of the machine as well.

Comes with a lot of documentation including original registration. certificate of date of manufacture. service history. riders manual. sales brochure. etc.

Has current Danish V5.

This is without question. a museum quality motorcycle.   You could add this to your collection as eye candy. start a new museum. ride it and be the envy of those cocky Fastback owners or just tell your son that maybe one day it will be his to cherish (or be like my father and just promise to be buried with it. )

Don't let this one slip by!
