Put a photo up ...that would be greatI have the same tank paint design
È questa una bella iniziativa. Io collezionista di Commando 6 sarei felice di mostrarli tra questi un PR originale, un Rob North 850 Norvil Mike Hemmings ed un Dominacer 1965 con motore Commando, un S un Roadster un PR replica + un Triumph Tridente. Moto che con altro uso e curo regolarmente ad 81 anni.Hmmmm....just sitting here wondering (oh yeah, 71 days until redeployment back to the US of A!!!!!) why there is no "post a picture of your Norton" thread on this forum. Am I missing some area of the forum that folks can post a pic of their Commando instead of on random threads? Seems it would be easier to devote one thread to this topic exclusively sort of like over at the Britbike forum. Just a suggestion.
I am a noob to this forum so just tell me to shut my pie hole if it has been discussed before (it probably has). I for one would really enjoy checking out owner photos of the most legendary of ALL british bikes...NORTON COMMANDO.
I enjoy seeing your motorcycle set up for traveling !
Summer has gone, pictures stay.
I am everytime astonished how tiny this motorcycle is.
I found some old polaroids of my Norton cafe from 1970. I believe the bike was a 69? Purchased used from a Norton dealer in Syracuse NY. Was told it had the Dunstall 810 kit and it came with that seat and tank in purple. I recall the dealer ran it at the Cicero NY drag strip https://www.estadrags.com/ for a season before selling me the bike with a fresh rebuild. I finished it up with the cafe kit and fresh 70's paint scheme. I believe it was the winter of my senior year in high school. The bike was very fast and would wheelie the entire length of the school parking lot. Had a lot of fun on that bike..........
Sorry for quality of the pictures but they are 52 year old polaroids after all.
Thanks, they were made by blowing through a straw on a small puddle of thinned paint. We called them blow balls back then.Nice, i think that bubble paint scheme would be cool!
Good memory. Yes it was. I had forgotten that.Was that Norton dealer on Erie Blvd? My Bonneville came from Central Square. North Syracuse had a nice little Triumph dealer too. The memories!
That is a very individual look - I love it !!My 1972 with a new Indian Interstate tank and metal side covers. Newly painted in Powdercoat red, sanded and 2k sating clear coated. View attachment 101891View attachment 101892
The Black covers make the bike look smaller to me, which is a good thing. Very tidy package. Well done.My 1972 with a new Indian Interstate tank and metal side covers. Newly painted in Powdercoat red, sanded and 2k sating clear coated.
