Description


I am selling one of my motorcycles from my collection. I am now 78 years old and this wonderful Commando is getting a little too much for me to handle. I bought it new in 1974 and have ridden it for all of its miles. You will never find one that is so well maintained. I am a mechanical engineer and have been riding motorcycles since I was 12 years old and am a skilled motorcycle mechanic. I now restore vintage and classic motorcycles as a hobby. I have more pictures of this Norton I can send you if you ask for them. Starts, runs and preforms perfectly - better than new.
The following are upgrades to this Commando

  • Elton Electric Starter w/150 watt alternator.
  • New (3/15/23) over capacity lithium battery. LiFe
  • Stainless steel spokes front and rear.
  • 12 inch Norvil front brake disk with anti-rattle spring washers.
  • Upgrade front brake caliper.
  • 13mm brake master cylinder conversion.
  • Mikuni carburetor w/choke conversion that uses stock choke lever.
  • K&N air filter.
  • Electronic ignition.
  • Corbin Smuggler seat.
  • New adjustable front isolastic system (no shims required).
  • Stainless steel front brake line.
  • Progressive fork springs.
  • Halogen headlight.
  • Nylon lined clutch cable.
  • Carbon fiber turn signals and mirrors.
  • Electronic ignition.
  • Anti-wet sump manual valve w/ignition lock out.
  • Oil pressure gauge.
  • Stainless steel valve rocker oil lines.
  • Clutch activation rod oil seal.
  • X-Ring chain and sprockets conversion.
  • All sealed bearings in rear hub with new rear sprocket/brake drum.
  • Too many stainless fasteners to list.
  • I will also include:
  • The original seat that has be recovered.
  • Keys with some duplicates.
  • Factory repair manual and original owners manual.
  • New easily adjustable rear isolastic kit. Present rear isolastic is adjusted and not worn enough to require replacement at this time.
  • Some (all I have) of the parts removed during the upgrades.

  • Notes: 1. No visible oil, brake fluid or fuel leaks. 2. The 7th picture shows easily removable vinyl “flames” that I just installed on both sides of the seat trunk.
    I love this bike and it breaks my heart to sell it but it needs to be ridden regularly. I will, of course, aid in getting the bike shipped to you or you can ride it away from Colorado Springs. It must be picked up by April 14, 2023 because I am leaving Colorado then until the late fall.

    This listing is for a 1973 Norton Commando, NOT a 1975. The frame, engine and Vin# all match.
