I've got a 1975 Commando that I recently purchased. My first Norton! It has some unfinished items I need to attend to before it is ready for the street. The prior owner completed some really great things on the bike, powder coated frame, rebuilt engine, new rims, spokes etc etc. Nicely done in every respect, he had intended on keeping the bike. The issue I have is a custom setup on the rear brake system. I have removed it since it was not complete and needed some custom work to make it work. I prefer to return it to stock. I now have a stock caliper that I will rebuild, (and a huge thank you to swooshdave for the recent caliper rebulid post!!!) a stock mounting bracket and a stock master cylinder "unit" . I do not have the brake lines or the brake tee or the components to the master cylinder. I need the pushrod and the other end, I think it is called the cylinder and piston. Who has done a rebuild and where did you purchase the parts? I see a cylinder and pushrod on ebay for $95 in stainless Item number: 270521810724 , yikes! I'm guessing it is terrific but I don't see the need to spend that much. I am looking for comments on where to purchase or complete my master cylinder. And I am happy to hear ALL comments.
