Is this Jim Comstock's bike? Belt drive and fuel injection (among many other things) gave it away!

Just recently? I know he was headed to that rally, but didn't know he had already gone...

He is very active on AccessNorton.com

I really value his knowledge and experience.

Yep. Or just in case your Commando's head gasket might be sealing properly!

Maybe that is about a 1955ish 500cc Manx. My favorite year for the featherbed Manx Norton is 1959 because it has the improved engine with the lighthouse cam drive, but it still has the old style oil tank, seat and metal bodyparts. With the bazillion replica Manx racers out there all mimicking the 1961-on style, I get tired of looking at them, but the only Manx Nortons around with the 1960 and earlier style are actually old machines.

Me and some acquaintances back in the 1980s. I bought the black 850 Commando for $500 of the original owner and pretty much beat it to death in a few years racing it on the street and track, ended up with some bent and burned valves etc.......
