Sleeving Atlas & 650 cylinders.

Norton Models (not Commando or P11)

Its likely that the shortage of Atlas and early commando barrels was down to AMC not being capable of producing them and relying on stock from the closed Norton factory. There was a lot of dumping of substandard stuff till AMC got their act together.

The Commando wasn't even thought of when Nortons moved from Bracebridge St to Plumstead (1963),
so Commando barrels couldn't ever have come from Nortons old stock.

And Nortons only ever made spigoted cylinders, so ONLY AMC could have manufactured non-spigoted cylinders.

We shouldn't generalise too much ?
