    A nice sunny morning so took a couple of pics of the new arrival.
    Motad shorties, bar end mirrors, cNw plug leads and a non factory breather seem to be the only mods.

    Another loan ranger. Did you stop for coffee and a breakfast sandwich (2 x bacon, 1 x sausage, 1 x egg on brown seeded bread) like I did

    Nice ride out, bit wintery but passed the milestone mileage 961. Back via rockingham raceway

    At the 2018 Motorama show. Just one other Norton there (a '57 I think).

    Hi Sam, a long wait on this one, March 28th was when I paid the deposit, it has been ready for a week or so but I wanted a 68 plate hence the extra wait, but very close to 5 months

    Still waiting for yours ?. Have you test ridden one ?. If not you're welcome to take mine for a spin and see how much better it becomes with a couple of thousand on the clock. Mark.

    very nice. It looks like you have the de-cat kit? You may like to consider removing the Lamda sensors (see separate 'Lamda Delete' thread) and then I am sure you'll get an even bigger grin....!

    Thanks for the offer Mark, no I still haven't ridden one , and I'm still waiting for mine , I've given the factory one more week to build my bike, my patience has run out.
    Will let you know what happens.

    I think mine took around 8-9 weeks. I think up to 3 months is acceptable for a hand built british bike like this. Have they said why there is a delay. Maybe they are in the middle of an upgrade to the model and await newer parts or something. Have you just paid the deposit or the full amount

    Thanks, hadn't thought about decat but correct you are. Found the original crossover with cat in the box of bits - man that thing weighs a lot. On top of Richard7's guides i have been going through all sorts of threads compiling a list of knowledge/experience from here. So much better than when i bought my original Commando in 1984 - Haynes manual was the only reference.

    Welsh,
    I think it depends when it was ordered. I ordered mine in February and it took 21 weeks to delivery/collection.

    Yes, I agree 3 months would have been fine, six months certainly isn't and the bike has been fully paid for since the beginning of July. This "service" just isn't good enough. The factory says they are waiting for forks to be delivered , hmmn maybe . Of course If the bike is built by next weekend all my dissatisfaction will surely vanish, and I really hope that is the case.
