    Norton Commado S

    At least I think it is based on the number. Anyway the poor bike has sat outside since 1990. I finished up a '75 MK3 and he decided to have me give this one a go. Engine is stuck solid, go figure. Wants to pretty much keep it the way it looks, including the paint. 20+ years outside and the paint still looks decent.

    Anyway my question is, who is the character on the tank? He thinks it is some Brit cartoon character from the 70's? Or is it just something someone came up with?

    I've ate many a bag of hot fries but I guess the beer and the smoke threw me off.

    Funny, you don't see his cartoons anymore. I guess a wife beating, jobless, alcoholic isn't that funny anymore.
