This is my 1972 Norton Commando Roadster 750.
It came into my possession from a friend as a sad pile of parts after a crash.
Through my work as a transporter for Colorado Norton Works I got motivated to bring the bike to life. Along with Matt of CNW, we worked out a plan and here's the result:
Many, many upgrades......here are a few:
Engine has been balanced and blueprinted.
Primary drive has been converted to belt drive
Carburation by two Keihin 35mm FCR
Electronic ignition by Tri Spark
Front brake converted to disc brake with Brembo caliper
Original 7000 mile bike. Purchased from estate of good friend and fellow 650 fanatic after 26 years displayed in his family room. Was with him in 1990 when he purchased it from the original owner. Includes original 1972 Ohio XS license plate.
This is my 1997 Harley-Davidson FLSTS Heritage Springer. It exemplifies everything that defines the American-made classic H-D: chrome, leather, conchos, sounds, smells, retro "springer" front suspension. All the accessories are genuine H-D. The previous owner replaced the fishtail exhaust with Screamin' Eagle pipes to pick up a few more horsepower. Not the fastest bike around but a great fun cruiser which has done the Route 66 run from Chicago to Santa Monica and got looks all the way. Cheers!
