    "Show pieces are nice and all but how bout some roadrunner."

    My green fastback on the first page of this thread is totally a road runner. Heck, the frame is rattle-can painted. Show bikes don't interest me at all. Working well and not worrying about whether it will survive "doing the ton" is the most important thing!

    Roadrunner you want, roadrunner you get. Here's a few of my 750:

    tpeever,
    I am sure there are not many Commando owners on here that park their bikes in the garage and stare at them. Some may look like show bikes but I am willing to bet they all get ridden.

    Believe it or not, there is a 100 point show bike underneath all the dust and rust! HOW's that for the "Crustiest Norton" out there???!! :D

    I like to see all the variations! Amazing how essentially the same bike can look so different with just little changes.
    These are a couple of years old:

    I was wrong! They are all show pieces and all special and all roadrunners.
    Sometimes the barnfinds are the most photogenic.

    The front is by Jack Difazio, he modified a test bike for Mike jackson

    The headstock was cut off and replaced by a pivot which moves the tank back by an inch or so.


    There are 2 lockheed callipers which through the linkages have anti dive built in, the wheel moves verticaly in the frame and hub steers about a central king pin

    Rides solidly and stops quite well!

    I will look out the restoration pictures, Norman White did the engine, he is only a few miles from Andover. incidently I am about 100 yards from the eold showroom/office from the 70s!

    Runs a new home built loom, pazon rectifier, o ring 520 chain and Falcon shocks, still need to sort the spring rate out
