Norton was founded by James Lansdowne Norton in Birmingham in 1898 and began building motorcycles with French and Swiss engines in 1902. In 1907 a Norton with a Peugeot engine won the first Isle of Man TT race starting a long tradition of sporting excellence. The Commando model launched in 1967 as a 750cc carried on this theme culminating in Peter Williams victory in the 1973 Formula 750 TT.
This 1973 model was the first year the Commando was supplied with the bigger and more torquey 850cc engine. It has been given a light restoration with stainless steel rims and an engine overhaul and comes fitted with an improved RGM front disc with a twin piston Grimeca caliper. It has been stood for about 18 months so will need some light recommissioning.
