    Goes off insurance midnight tomorrow...so getting a few more miles on the clock this season...and thought I'd better take a few snaps with a real camera & proper glass instead of the phone-cam:

    Hey Tornado, this is gorgeous.

    what makes your back rubber look these distinctive ?

    Thanks for the compliment..Proper camera gear makes all the difference.
    Re. Rear rubber, it's an 18" alloy rim (from Madass on these forums) with a taller profile tire (K70) than stock. So I guess it does look fuller than other bike when compared to front and with other stock Commandos. But to me it looks way smaller than the 16" fatty wheel/tire that was on this bike when I acquired it last January in HiRider config ( only the 2 Gallon tank and 5 3/4" headlamp remain).

    The NOCNZ booth at the NZ Motorcycle Show show is chock full of Commandos to celebrate the 50th. All there, save @Brooking 850 who was lucky last.

    And mine, with the alloy finally on and a chicken scratching info card. :confused:

    Tank and sidecovers are sprayed with Por15. Next door is a special that a local guy made his own frame with 29 years ago. MX wheels and claims 320lbs wet.

    He had a Vincent Black Shadow engined frame he just built that had an Ohlin shocked custom girder and aluminum box framed swingarm he made. Took 3rd in the show.

    Just got the tins mounted properly and the graphics on. A bit of tweaking and running in and it'll be ready for Spring.

    I have your bike's near twin in my garage. In fact, hope to ride it on my first Saddle Sore 1,000 and/or 100/100/100/100 ride this coming spring...

    Great day yesterday first start and first 100 miles on my rebuilt motor:)
    Some quiet time in the workshop today, for me the bike and my hangover :rolleyes: Pulling down the head setting tappets, timing, oil change.
    Happy New year !

    EB159800-A426-4EA5-AD34-4963711FEBB4.jpeg Had a lovely ride out yesterday, 100 miles or so in the Jura, but so cold. My phone died through cold so couldn’t take a photo. And my favourite coffee stop closed for January! But washed off the salt and a nice polish up once thawed out. Going to look at heated grips today.

    Have a good day

    Martin

    Hi, yes the CNW starter is great. First class construction and easy starting cold or hot.

    Hi Martin,
    Love your bike. Is that a long range fastback tank? From what I can see you aren't running a standard front brake. Have you has any issues at the Strassenverkehrsamt?

    Cheers,

    cliffa.

    Hea
    Heated grips are good, but a heated jacket liner is wonderful....feels like you're in a warm bath!
    I run a liner from Powerlet...claims to be highest out put sold (105Watts) and has a wireless two circuit temp controller. Got it at clearance markdown from $400 to $99 cdn.
    Have tried it on my '74 850 and seems to work well if the stock headlight is off. Will be swapping in an LED lamp oneday
