    1970 Norton Commando cafe racer

    This is my most recent client resto/furb, a Commando 750 cafe racer with rearsets, clip-ons & bum-stop seat. Alloy rims, fresh paint, Sparx electronic ignition, K&N dual-neck air filter, & new Avon tires. Other than that, pretty much stock.













    It will do the ton without too much fuss, maybe 125 or so, with the gearing it's got...

    That's the ticket, slap a Rockers Jacket on and take a Black and white photo. I like it..... Nice crisp look to it.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    No, silly, this the FINISHED bike.

    Here are the three faces it has had. I overhauled the engine and did powdercoat & polishing, my friend did all the rest in the top photo.

    Middle photo was the best I could do with what I had on the shelves to get it on e-bay, and sold it to my latest client who directed that it look like the bottom photo...
