That’s my 1972 Combat Commando Interstate. I snagged last month. I’m already working on it and buying tools and parts. Yup, just like I remembered. By the way, just joined up here. Cool site and great resource! Thanks!

Porridge,
What part of the country are you located?Nice looking Interstate!

Wow that’s clean bongo, looks like it’s be owned by a good and mindful owner too. Enjoy.
Bongo? Wasn't he an odd 'tashed 70's kids magician? Or was it a fruit drink, I can't recall :D

Yeah, it's pretty clean and original to be honest. Nice patina. Spent it's life in the US and judging by the condition of it's 48 year age, hasn't seen as much rain as it would've been subjected to over here. Of course, the pictures make it look much sweeter than in real life close-up.

Took it on its maiden outing today, and had to return home sooner than I'd have liked due to some 'issues', which I'll seek some advice on in another thread, but I'm over the moon.

That’s a beautiful motorcycle!Good for you.
 
Just made some changes:
  • Fitted black headlight bucket & instrument buckets (Matt's new CNC ones)
  • Fitted black brake plate & RH rear wheel cover (both these & above parts done with the 2K epoxy can in satin black)
  • Fitted red tank & side covers bought from our @Dellis - gives quite a different look, I think.

Awesome bike!! How about those wheels are they 18 " front and rear ?
 
Scanning through all of these amazing photos, it is interesting to note that, like human portraits, the Norton Commando definitely has its favourite face. Now, I wonder why?
