Description

1972 Norton 750 Commando Interstate
Registration no. JLN 71K
Engine no. 20M35 150152

Norton's Commando was produced from 1968 through 1975, beginning with the Fastback, followed by the Roadster in 1969. The Interstate, whose main difference is a large capacity fuel tank, was added to the range in 1972. There is little available history for the yellow 750 which, until acquired by the vendor as a refurbishment exercise, had been dry-stored for many years. Despite the Dunstall footrests and gear change it is not known if these clues indicate the presence of any Dunstall internals. To date the owner has focussed on the rolling chassis, to which the following new parts have been fitted: a complete Roadster exhaust system; rims, spokes, bearings and tyres; fork stanchions, seals, and bushes; wiring harness; handlebars, and sundry items. Having spent a considerable sum, and with many demands on the vendor's time, the Commando is offered as a yet-to-be-finished restoration project. Supplied with V5C.
