Fantastic condition 1972 Norton 750 Commando with full Dunstall bodywork!
Restoration was recently completed by Baxter Cycle of Marne, Iowa to a very high standard on this Dunstall-ized version of the 750 Commando to mimic the factory Production Racer. Note replica pea-shooter mufflers and coated downpipes, Dunstall fiberglass – seat, tank, fairing and front fender – and front disc brake, and rims and spokes upgrades, and clip-on handlebars. Norton produced around 50,000 Commandos, but few are as handsome as this one! This bike has gone through a complete, ground-up restoration which included full engine rebuild (new Superblend bearings, new rod bearings, new pistons/rings, new valves/guides/springs, new Surflex clutch), new electronics (new wiring harness, TriSpark ignition, 16A stator/rotor, solid state regulator/rectifier), complete rebuild on the chassis (powder coated frame, new chrome rims with stainless steel spokes, new sealed wheel bearings, new rear shocks, rebuilt front forks), rebuilt gearbox (new bearings including a 2-piece roller on the layshaft, seals, and bushings), new Amal carburetors, rebuilt gauges… the works! Bike starts and runs like new!
While the Dunstall kit gives the bike a full road-race ready look, this bike is street legal with head light and tail light. Sound out of the ceramic coated exhaust is heavenly!
