Fell in love with a Norton Commando when I was 13, saw it in a mag my uncle gave me. Few years later I picked an exact copy of the one I saw in the photos. Black with gold striping, 1972 Combat.
It dropped a valve one day, destroyed the engine and broke my heart. Didn't have the money to fix it at the time. Sold a it to a friend a few years later, who has since done an excellent restoration, you can check it out at his website www.reproductiondecals.com
Here I am, many years ago, on my pride and joy
Have since moved to Australia from Canada. Picked up another Commando, this time a 1971 with a Fireflake Golden Bronze paint job. Am loving it and have vowed never to make the mistake of letting it go again.
At Myponga resevoir in South Australia with my mates Commando
My other Brit ride is a 1956 Bantam but can't find a photo right now. She's rough, been used at a trials machine for years, but a good solid bike.
My 1965 SS 650 looked like this when I got it in April, but the engine was very worn w/ blown head gasket, a cracked piston and worn rod bearings.
I'm just picked up the last of the internal engine parts I need, and ready to begin reassembly of the crankshaft Lots of work ahead, but am enjoying the process.
Nice to see another Fireflake Bronze example out there. You don't see too many. I've had mine for (yikes!) 32 years.
Almost sold it a couple times and often wished it was a black or candy apple red example...but the colour has grown on me and has become one of it's defining characteristics for those who have known the bike over the years!
The bike is original and going back on the road shortly after an eight year hiatus. A full service on it replaced the primary chain, battery, coils and high tension leads, plus a few cables and springs.
Norton Manxman? Just reading Burt Hopwoods account of it.
Looking forward to seeing more of your photographs as the project moves along
Thats a lovely colour machine and makes a real chance from the regular Black/Camdy apple/Silver bikes.
Great first post. Enjoy the bike!
Thanks mate! Been checking out the forum for so long I didn't even realize it was my first post
Former World Trials Champion Mick Andrews (Triumph mounted) back at the Ormstown Vintage Off-Road festival last weekend in Quebec.
It took three decades, but it has started to grow on me!
You can't rush these things...

A vintage Brit on a Vintage Brit - John Surtees ... just in case anyone didn't know.
Wish I could find the clip from the movie "Faster" where Kenny Roberts tells everyone he invented dragging the knee
Ummm... Not quite correct..
