Found on eBay: 1974 Norton Commando Roadster


Tags: ,


It's not every day you stumble upon a Norton Commando that looks ready to ride. Many of the good ones are being stashed away in collections, and even a basket-case Commando can bring a pretty penny anymore. But this Roadster looks like that perfect example of a well-loved but well-used bike that makes us itch for a tank full of gas and a warm spring day.

According to the auction listing, the current owner is the third owner of this Norton. As best we can tell, it looks like the tank and side covers wear the original paint and decals, and the owner mentions that these pieces have been clear-coated. The fenders have been painted black and clear-coated, and it wears a new Corbin seat, new tires, battery, wiring, grips and more. The owner states that the bike runs great and that the title is clear.

Though not perfect, this looks like a great Commando to buy and ride. If you're as curious as we are, visit the auction for this Norton Commando 850 Roadster here.
