A 305 Superhawk is what I had before buying the '72 Commando. It explains why I wasn't concerned about hitting 8000rpms on the Norton - that wasn't really pushing the Superhawk. Never looked back to Japanese road machines after that first Norton. Only rode Nortons, BMWs, Ducati, Triumph, BSA, Rickman since 1973.
