Trying to decide between a Norton Commando and a 1969 Trophy?

Best Answer Choice

Well done, classic choices.

BUT either require re-engineering, consider if U are up to it. will have had numerous botching owners, think in of a full strip and re-build.

The mark IIA ‘bendy’ (as you had it in the US) 850cc was the best of the bunch, pre the electric non start (so, much the Trumpet ’69 pre oil in frame was the best of the crop, the single Trophy was the bees knees and went round corners ’65’s didn’t).

you do it, though, another piece of resurrected.

The Norton is the most comfy distance, the Trumpet the most the rest is up to you.
