Additional photos of this Norton Commando 750 are available here for your perusal.
The seller acquired it six months ago from a private party who had to move out of the state. “He had owned and cherished the bike for 25 years with a full frame-off restoration and enjoyed the bike locally. It is well-known within the SoCal Norton Community.”
The seller is letting it go as “I have three other bikes, all BMWs, each more well-suited to my chosen riding type which is exploring, adventure, and travel. I bought this Norton as a bit of nostalgia on a whim, and I’m glad I did. I thoroughly enjoy it, but it’s not going to get ridden much and will just take up garage space. It belongs with somebody who will enjoy it and ride and tinker in equal amounts and that’s not me yet.”
During his ownership, the seller cleaned and re-jetted the carbs: “I raised the needle (dropped the clip one notch) for the hot summer months to richen it up, so right now I’d recommend raising the clip to drop the needle to lean it out just a bit so it’s a little more crisp.”
Mechanically, the seller states that this is “an absolute strong runner,” noting that it could use an oil change, some tightening of the wheel spokes, and new spark plugs. He highly recommends utilizing the same NGK spark plugs as this Commando is “sensitive to plugs.”
Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment if you’d like to inspect it), this Commando is offered on a clean California title with registration current through May 2021.
