    Can't see a specific Norton thread.So If you like bikes that mark their territory and vibrate across the garage floor-lets see them:D

    I have my MK2 since -94, bought it used from Chicago, shipped it to Paris and here in San Francisco since 2000. Went through some transformation: mk3 rear wheel with R1 rear caliper, front Luchier brake, belt drive, hydraulic clutch...Till -09 when it was destroyed in a collision with a 1198. Here it is now (before the Alton electric starter, just installed).

    Thats me at the back 26 years ago with another friends 750 Commando. He bought that when he was 17 for £400, he's still got the bike and despite being crashed, catching fire and being mercilessly thrashed for years and covering well over 100,000 miles is still going strong with the original engine. - No luxury of garages in those days.

    I've been riding the Commando since 1977 and it's the "therapy" ride.

    Here is my 1972 Norton 750 Commando Combat with Dunstall fiberglass (Except the tail section which is a re-pop of a production racer tail from Norvil in the UK). Brutal on the back, if you are not careful it will break your foot starting it, drops oul if you don't run it every week, typical Norton.

    Here is my 75' MKIII after about 10 months of work all done my self. When I got this it was a mess, nothing but dirt, rust, and oil mixed up in the form of a motorcycle but I new it had potential.
