Hi everyone so a few years ago I got lucky enough to find a very early example of a 1968 Norton Villiers Commando within the first 70 bikes according to the engine an frame numbers which all match including the gearbox. Always wanted a 68' as my uncle raced his 1968 back in the day! With lots of Gus Kuhn stuff. Unfortunately as a few are aware do to the family print company closing an getting made redundant, I didn't get to ride her much apart from a few goes will dig some pictures out from the work I did do which included checking the valves and installing a Tri Spark Electronic ignition. Going through the bike now found a couple of things to sort out.. Don't think the fuel taps are original and not mad on how they are sealed. Needs the matt chrome redoing on a few of the items. Fuel tank mounting stuff is rubbish previous owners stuff gonna order the right kit from Andover. Slight leak on the primary chain case so gonna order a new rubber o ring any tips anyone? Slight leak on the bottom of the timing chest outer cover as well. All in all though not bad usually keep notes but alas they were in the desk at work so had to go through her all today just to sus out exactly where I was up to. Anyway hope you all enjoy planning on the first ride tomorrow. Cheers, Tom Uncle Jud on his Race bike!

FB_IMG_1559242321063 by norton.rider, on Flickr Test fitted a replacement tank I got, need to get it pressure tested and extend the front studs as they are not long enough but really not bad used a profile gauge and the top curvature of the tank is pretty much identical to the original, back bits are slightly different where the strap goes but functions ok. Something to get painted later in the year LRM_EXPORT_20170922_154204_wm by norton.rider, on Flickr LRM_EXPORT_20170922_155320_wm by norton.rider, on Flickr my two babies chilling out together when I was replacing the grips on the 650SS LRM_EXPORT_20170823_182307-01 by norton.rider, on Flickr Bit of a video talking about the 750 First start of the year All ready or the ride out quite a funny moment when I was looking for the kill button on the 650ss then I remembered it was a key lol Plan for tomorrow is down one of my local test routes just to put a few miles on her engine still needs running in so wanna do a short 10 mile ride then come home an check everything is tight. So should hopefully have some GoPro footage all being well.
