I think that was a "before" rash, and it looks rather machined IMHO.
As much as I’d like to claim it is a ‘rash’ from my adventures whilst two wheel drifting around the outside of Rossi... it is actually a flat that I put there because the exhaust was fouling the cover.
Sorry to disappoint y’all !
Looking rather purposeful!
Thanks. That was the design brief !
Finally got a proper ride this weekend. Bike is fantastic. Took some pictures.
Great looking bike. I love the painted fenders and that you got rid of those horrible "lollypop" directionals for the emgo's. I did exactly the same thing to my commando. I also have short low handlebars like you do too. I just couldn't stand the small roadster fuel tank because I don't put ethanol fuel in my commando, so I went to interstate tank and sidecovers so I can extend my range without searching for non-E fuel. (nice photography too...)
Headlamp brackets are on the wrong side.
Brand new member here, and brand new owner of this 1972 850 Commander My goal is to keep the bike as original as possible, just make it as reliable as possible, so the search for a proper set of handle bars is going to start soon
Engine has not run in 15 years so trying to decide if I should get it running and "go with it" or if I should tear it down and check/replace wearable items. The bike has 10,000 miles on it.
Sorry about the URL link, I could not figure out how to attach an image that exists on my local machine.
The bike looks great!
I had some of those petrol taps before but can’t recall where I got them from! Can you enlighten me?
Also, what are the carbs?

1973 850 Commando. A Commander is a different (rotary engined) model.
Thank you for the welcome, and please accept my apology. I know it's a Commando, simply a typo.
Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium.
I'm just wondering why I haven't got a Belgian flag in the corner of my icon and still a UK one?
I could still do with a few photography lessons though, it's a good job I only sell planks for a living.
Probably because you are connecting via your UK internet provider, so the proxy servers are located in the UK.
Another random drug search
Must be on something to ride that ...
Don’t be silly.
Fined for being too purple...
I may have been exceeding the speed limit....
As a teenager in the 70's I had hair down to my shoulders (now it starts at my shoulders ) I wore loons, platforms and had elephant ear collars on my shirts. Hence nothing is too Purple.
