I had my Commando part restored by a dick head on the Sunshine coast way back in 1993 (all because his triples and T120 featured in Australasian Classic bike ) and that cost me <$20K>
Yes a long & tedious story ~ and then I had to rebuild the gearbox 6 months later ~ and (cannot recall his name now~ the boss of the former Village Norton in Logan); said he saw mine prior to delivery and was impressed BUT could NOT see the money `~ Also mentioned that the bloke had been sniffing around his premises asking questions about AMC gearboxes !!
And I figure as good as mine is I don't think it compares to these beauties ~
They sure are gorgeous bikes! They just ooze quality. Their products are very good and they are good to deal with. My headlight brackets (ears in the US?) were rusted beyond redemption and CNW alloy ones were not much more than replacement originals from Andover. Great choice! Beautifully made - top quality. I recently ordered the small filter for the oil tank vent - recieved a reply email from Matt Rambow at CNW advising that I cancel the order as the shipping cost more than the part and advising me where I might find the same paret locally!!!!! When was the last time you got that sort of service?
