Another beautiful example of a Classic motorcycle and at that price I don't think he would have any trouble moving it, it would certainly sell quickly here at under $20k Oz. for a new Norton.

The problem being, as we know, it's only new once, if it is ridden it looses a lot of value.

I hear what you say, but i find it real sad that someone bought the bike 30 yrs ago & didn't get any fun out of it. Price vs. value

i agree........but then again........I wouldn't have minded buying a 1970 Convertible Hemi 'Cuda, maybe drive it a few thousand miles then sit on it.

I could have retired by now.

I reckon you would treat it like buying a new bike. At least the depreciation wouldn't be as bad as a new bike. Then at least you have a new classic?

I know of one - saw it with my own eyes. I had heard about it for years, the current owners brother was a Norton dealer back in the '70's and this was one of the last ones he brought in - its a white '74 Roadster, still in the crate to this day.

Oh, don't even bother asking, its not for sale.

How many more new unregistered Commandos can there be left now?

Although not new, a Commando came up on Ebay recently that caught my interest. It had a "Buy it now price" and I suspected it would sell early. It did... like a few hours after it was listed.

Nice bike. An early Kenny Dreer version, apparently.

I think Ebay only keeps the link alive for week, so my link above will only last five more days or so...
