1971 Norton Commando Racer for Sale

Posted on 23, 2013 by tad

This is a really Norton Commando in prime I typically prefer the look of bikes from this but you can’t argue with the on display here: take a at the primary cover and that bodywork!

To many, British twins epitomize the vintage experience and capture the true of the “Ton Up Boys” that the true cafe racers: CB’s with Clubman and chopped fenders are undeniably but they really came much later and had nothing to do that scene originally.  It was the and parallel-twins from Triumph, and BSA that really set the tone for style.

And while Triumph has undergone a into a company with one in the future and one firmly in the past, still languishes as a boutique of expensively vintage machines.  one day, they will be screaming into the 21st

The eBay listing for this Norton Commando Cafe includes a comprehensive account of the done and the most significant along with a mention of won:

Ride and Dependability

bike is almost always a starter.  Sometimes two if it is first of the day.  Idles wonderfully and response and horsepower.  Frankly, the on the bike is superb and I wouldn’t a thing.  It is one of the most dependable on the road.

  One would certainly hope as how just about everything has replaced.  The riding position on the is “committed”.  It is long and low.

  for hard riding and banging the turns but around town you want to make sure you a padded left forearm on jacket because you will use it to prop yourself up off the gas tank!  The shifts great and the hydraulic makes shifting so much now that the heavy cable clutch of old is gone.  Shift is reversed from the original which makes it standard to other bikes.

  In other words, shift on this bike is one down/ up.

In total, this has taken home six awards.  in Show twice.  Best Racer twice.  Best Custom once.  Best Street once.

  I want to I did not build this bike up to be a queen and it isn’t.  I ride bike.  I ride it almost in the Summer.  I do not spend countless polishing the aluminum.  If it gets I am OK with that.

  I take care of this and make sure it is always in top shape but I do not obsess over or dirt.  So to that end, are a few scratches here and there on the Nothing I would consider

  The paint bubbled a bit around the neck as gas got in under the paint.  since added a rubber around the neck to keep from happening again.

This is a usable bike clearly meant to be ridden, not a trailer-queen: note the subtle, sacrilegious but probably …-accurate Smiths instruments and the beautiful, but slightly too modern rearsets.  not period-correct, but reassuring, since clear it was built with in mind, not posing.  Although it will do that as well.

a very nice, completely bike.  Bidding is up over and the reserve has not been met.  no surprise and I’d expect bidding to get lively as the clock winds on this one.
