1975 Norton 850 Commando
The current, second owner of this bike has owned it for 30 years, since 1990. All numbers matching, he has put the majority of the 18,000 miles on it. Several years and roughly 6000 miles ago, the engine and the 4 speed trans were sent to the Hogslayer himself, TC Christenson, for a complete rebuild. Suffice to say, the 850 (828 cc) parallel twin is putting out a bit more than the stock 51 HP, with custom cam, new pistons and other bits tweaked by Todd himself. In those same 6000 miles, a Mikuni carb and manifold were added, the rear axle and sprocket were replaced, brakes have been done and new Avon tires fitted.
While the engine was out, the tank and covers were painted gloss black and gold accents added.
The electric start does operate correctly, however, the battery is down a bit and should be replaced.
The low end torque moves this bike along rather well and is a super solid road bike, not a show queen.
Absolutely ready to hop on and ride.
Asking price is $10,000
