1975 Norton Commando MK 3

This was the final version of the Norton Commando, identified by the left foot shifter, electric start and disc rear brake. This classic motorcycle is brand new, discovered in a closed-up store in Mississippi. The 6-gallon gas tank, in Norton racing colors of silver-gray with black and red lining, and the long seat show that this machine is to "Interstate" specs.

Agreed, I got to ride a '73 once, man, it was sweet. It was so effortless to ride. I love the P-11.

Absolutely Beautifull! I wonder what the value is on this? Makes me wish I would have kept my Nortons....
