1969 Norton Commando 750R
Bought it off a neighbor in 1986 for $700. He had done 3 tours of duty in Vietnam, come back, got married and bought this cycle new. Two weeks later a farming accident cost him his left arm to just below the elbow. We put the clutch on the throttle side then he and his wife proceeded to put 50K miles on it in 2 years. It sat unused in his garage then until I bought it. 56K miles on it now and in full need of restoration after my wife and I really wore it out.....
Paint and exterior
Vette color; was spray can red metalflake and silver with ape-hangers on it when I got ot.
Upholstery and interior
Most uncomfortable factory seat ever.
Wheels and tires
Not bad for drums
