1975 Norton Commando Special
Registration no. HGA 227N
Frame no. F111554
Engine no. 20M3S 111554 (see text)
Dating from 1975, the Commando offered here has been rebuilt in the earlier 'Fastback' style complete with drum front brake, seat cowl and '750' decals. The engine is of the later 750cc type (20MS3, points in timing cover) though it should be noted that it has not been possible to verify the actual cubic capacity. The V5C incorrectly records the latter as 850cc,. Importantly, it should be noted that the engine number has been mistakenly re-stamped to match the frame number. When Commando frame numbering switched to an 'F' prefix in 1974 (beginning F1*****) the engine numbering continued as before (beginning with a '3' by this time) so from this point onwards frame and engine numbers cease to be identical. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine is offered with the aforementioned V5C document and a quantity of restoration invoices. Buyers should satisfy themselves as to the date of manufacture, model and capacity of the machine prior to bidding.
