type: standard
condition: good
engine displacement (CC): 750
motor: gas
odometer: 40000
title status: clean
transmission: manual
Sorted and running with dull chrome and a ten footer paint job. Features new battery, reconditioned clocks, new oil, fuel and brake lines, new valve stem seals, new petcocks, new fluids. Previous "older restoration" includes updated vernier style isolastics, updated charging system, new chain and sprockets, new clutch and tires, new 34mm carbs, Boyer ignition, Hagon rear shocks. Hard to tell what the original mileage really is. The speedo showing 7194 miles is not original to the bike. I confirmed the cylinder head is stamped "C" when I removed the head. I also confirmed a previous top end overhaul as it has .040 over pistons.

All numbers match. Cylinder head has a few broken fins. I have a set of Dunstall pipes and a different seat that can be substituted. Ride it as an oily rag hooligan Norton, or for this price take it to the next level and restore it into the $12K bike it can be. It is a very strong running bike. Clear title. If you want something with better provenance in excellent material condition, I also have a 1973 Commando 850 listed.

If the ad is here, it is still for sale. Don't need any help selling. A conversation works better than texting or emailing.
