Hi all, I am new to this great forum so wanted to post an introduction. I just purchased 314219, currently fitted with a candy apple red Roadster steel tank and side panels for about twice the price I should have, especially since the gearbox serial number does not match the frame and engine. And there is a MK3 rear engine isolastic cradle wrapped around that gearbox (yup – no adjustment slot!). Additionally, the head steady is the early non-box style (what?) and the front brake master cylinder is without any parts at all. I hope to have this bike up on my stand shortly to see what other horrors await. But this motorcycle must fill the hole left in my heart when I sold 305308, my first Commando and the bike I always wished I had never parted with. It is truly getting tougher and tougher to find the unmolested Commando, but they are out there, I just missed the opportunity. Spent about a year looking including all of the U.S. and some of Canada – the heavily dusty and original bikes are out there, but you have to be fast to move on these. That said, there is no end of well-restored bikes with proper modifications if you have the money, and frankly that is probably what I should have done in this case. I have a question for the group here. Would it be appropriate to set a sticky post titled “I have your Engine, Frame, or Gearbox” on this forum? The purpose of this post is to build, by VIN number, a clearinghouse for “orphaned” engines, gearboxes, and frames so that anyone might, somehow, find their “missing” gearbox (in my case). If I posted this, I would offer up my later gearbox by number so the person with the matching engine and frame (VIN tag, really…) could work with me to get it back into their machine. Happy to have found this forum and looking forward to many useful and wasted hours poring over the information. EDIT: As requested pics here.
