1974 Norton Commando 850
Service & Customizing
Owner: David B., Virginia
COMMENTS: This bike was customized to give it a clean, minimal, cafe racer look centered around the brushed aluminum tank. Substantial fabrication was performed on the rear frame to accommodate the hand-made seat & cowling which houses the AGM gel battery & electrical system. Work included frame painting in customer specified "Porsche Polar Silver", installing a new wiring system - which was run entirely inside the frame, rebuilding the Amal carburetors, complete top & bottom end rebuild, replace steering head bearings, install isolastic frame mounts, replace handlebars & controls & add 1" risers, new exhaust system, shorten the front fender, install new oil tank & lines, install LED front & rear lights and cat-face tail light, install Boyer ignition, add brush finish to rear sets, all new cables, and create a new ignition switch & location. This bike is a one-of-a-kind head turner that took almost 1 year to create.
Won 3rd place at the 2008 Virginia British Motorcycle Club Rallye in Leesburg, VA on Sunday, October 5, 2008
