    titled as a ‘70 but s/n (130xxx) more indicates mid 1969 mfg. Cam end timing cover tach drive. Runs ok a bit valve noisy to me but this is my 1st norton, looks real nice from 10-feet. Nice patina as they say. No rust. The bike looks good. New single Mikuni 34mm with pancake k&n, new cnw single coil conver, new plug wires, older Boyer ignition. Newer CS pea shooters & pipes. Recent Avon 19” f&r. New TAB II aluminum fastback fuel tank, BAP petcocks, new vernier isolastics (rear not installed yet) Dave Taylor head steady. Solid caswelled fiberglass tank (black) with very few bubbles....fully serviceable and attractive. Oil pressure gauge (not installed & damb them anyway!). Aluminum levers. Oil changed compulsively looking for magic never found. Starts 1-2 kicks (hail Mikuni), shifts good, stops good. No smoke no oil use. Drips on garage floor like normal. Lots of new small bits. Aluminum polishers dream come true. Free can of Mother’s, Nevr-dull & the blue stuff. Original 30mm carbs, velocity stacks, braided fuel lines, etc, etc & other parts. I have never been into the motor. $7,250 OBO, located in dry Albuquerque, NM.

    Pics as soon as I can figure it out, or can email or txt them. Hope my riding buds are understanding too. Pics Here: https://ibb.co/mTv8JJ; https://ibb.co/dZ9Dky; https://ibb.co/c4sYky; https://ibb.co/mRbFyJ.

    Looks like an Evan Wilcox tank, he does such nice work.

    I know RedApe's bike as I have done a lot of the routine work on it and it is very good condition.
    Starts easily and has no known motor issues, normal Commando power, very clean bike.

    I appreciate the comments . I worked with Richard Phelps @ TAB II Classics on tank. He does nice work. And, front wheel respoked and looks great, rear no rust but dull.
