Intro and my new to me Norton. Hello all thanks for having this awesome forum . I'm jack and this is my new ride . I'm 60 years old have owned a lot of motorcycles over the years and was a mechanic at several Japanese and one HD dealerships at present I'm a truck driver closing in on retirement so having wanted a Norton Commando since I was in the 6th grade almost 50 years ago I got serious and actively started looking for a Commando about 5 years ago. found a few Commandos for sale but they were too far from my location so I passed and then just this year this one in the pic shows up only 50 miles away so I jump in and bought it for 8,000 dollars I got a a running ride able bike with title, spare parts and matching numbers engine ,tranny and frame I stoked . Any way the Commando while complete and running it does need some work and also I need to add a few things to make it my bike the way I want so that's what this thread is going to be about making this Commando my own, plans are correct the oil leaks , low bars , rear sets and kicker. an oil pressure gauge and a rebuild if needed but I am hoping the engine is solid and I don't need to rebuild but we will see once I get started. Looking forward to your ideas and opinions on this Commando.
