Norton Commando 750 Roadster 1972


A symbol of timeless style and British engineering excellence, this matching numbers Commando was first registered in the UK on the 29/3/1972 and has the benefit of various upgrades. Electronic ignition, external oil filter, rebuilt alloy flanged rims with stainless spokes, uprated front brake, uprated forks with lansdowne internals and steel petrol tank to name a few! The previous owner didn’t do many miles last year so we have ultrasonically cleaned the carbs and set them up ready for the new owner.

The Commando’s vibration-beating Isolastic frame enabled Norton Villiers successfully to prolong the life of their ageing parallel twin. Launched in 1967, with production commencing in 1968, the Commando used the preceding Featherbed-framed Atlas model’s 750cc engine and AMC gearbox, and was an instant hit with the motorcycling public, being voted Motor Cycle News ‘Machine of the Year’ for five consecutive years. It might have been a little down in top speed compared to rivals such as BSA-Triumph’s 750cc triples and Honda’s CB750 four, but the Commando more than made up for this minor deficiency with superior mid-range torque and steadier handling. New variations on the basic theme soon appeared, commencing in 1969 with the addition of the more sporting, though conventionally styled, ‘S’ version, complete with high-level exhausts. This was followed in 1970 by the Roadster, which was basically the ‘S’ with a low-level exhaust system.
