The Norton Commando is a British Norton-Villiers motorcycle with an OHV pre-unit parallel-twin engine, produced from 1967 until 1977. Initially with 750cc (745cc), in 1973 it became 850cc (828cc). The larger 850 engine was introduced initially as an alternative to the 750, but as the sole option from late 1973. All 850 models were fitted with a front disc brake. During its ten years of production, the Commando was popular all over the world. In the UK it won the Motor Cycle News "Machine of the Year" award for five successive years from 1968-1972. Around 60,000 Commandos were made in total.
Part of a small private collection this 1976 Norton Commando Mk3 was restored 10 years ago to a high standard by the current owner and has been upgraded over the years to include a 920cc big bore conversion, big valve 41mm cylinder head, 32mm Mk2 Amal carbs, upgraded electric starter drive gear and starter motor and high output alternator. The engine has recently been rebuilt with a new standard camshaft and a new electronic ignition system. Used on many VMCC runs but not ridden for several months, it will require the usual checks before use. Offered with a history file and a current V5C.
