Project Description


Norton Commando 750 Fastback 1972

A great example of Norton’s ‘fastback’ Commando 750. Having just had an oil service the Norton is ready for the summer months, this Commando sports some nice upgrades – remote oil filter, anti drain valve, stainless spokes, electronic ignition, single Mikuni carb & additional isolastic exhaust mounts from the 850. There is a comprehensive file of paperwork including various invoices from 2008 detailing an engine rebuild.

The Commando’s vibration-beating Isolastic frame enabled Norton Villiers to prolong the life of their ageing parallel twin. Launched in 1967, the Commando used the preceding Atlas model’s 750cc engine and AMC gearbox, and was an instant hit with the motorcycling public, being voted MCN’s ‘Machine of the Year’ for five consecutive years. It might have been a little down on 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. The sole model available became the ‘Fastback’, so called because of its streamlined seat cowl, when the range was extended by the addition of a conventionally styled, ‘S’ version in 1969.
