Thread: because Norton. Yee Haw.

BCF is primarily about British Cars, but there was enough interest to have a forum to discuss British Motorbikes...and this is it.

    I'd have the Commando in a heartbeat... My dad is responsible for the engine and transmission in that bike.

    1974 850 Commando - one of the best looking bikes ever made.
    For me,it has to be a Black one.I remember that Tony had a Yellow one.
    I didn't take my own advice to buy one when they were a bargain.

    I would have liked the video better if he had fired up the Norton instead of that crotch rocket.
    I've always like the Nortons and someday I might break down and buy one of them. Of course, I'll need to go to a college that teaches courses about old fashioned electrical systems to get around the Lucas curse that follows the Nortons but in these modern times, it can be done.

    The Norton Commando was truly a awesome machine, even today among many of today's 180 mph crotch rockets.
