"i found an old norton,, dont really know what i'm looking at" Thu May-15-08 07:26 PM by webmaster
could anyone help me identify this bike and the parts on it?
and how much it would be worth in the current condition and if i was to repaint. polish everything, i havent bought it yet but i'm the only person who knows about it and that its for sale, its a friend who has it.
engine turns over, no title yet, i think the seat and tail came from an H2.
From forum admin,
Unfortunately the images had to be removed for 2 reasons:
1> they were posted on a third party site rather than being uploaded directly to this forum. This causes many access problems for many of our users who can not access the third party site.
2> They are too large to display on normal sized screens. The user did not resize the pictures to a normal viewable size to fit the forum message. This includes width and height (usually 640 x 480)AND actual file size in kb (usually less than 75k).
Many people could be uploading pictures if they took the time to try it and learn it. Read the FAQ for assistance. You can email me and I will be happy to help. editor at britiron.com

Well it is a 750 Commando. An engine number would be helpfull.
The front end, yokes, forks, disk brake and rim are all not Norton.
- you are right about the tail piece. It is not Norton either.
The mufflers are different to me but maybe in some markets they had them??
Apart from that it looks like most cycle parts are present.
Price and value is really hard. You don't say where you are and that makes a difference too. (But I see the speedo is in kph which is unusual - not the States?) It could be perfect inside or it could be a disaster - to fix a wrecked engine can be thousands. There as bit of oil on the outside but that might be a good thing - no rust ! The pipes look to have stripped threads into the head which is the start of spending money. Plus it looks like it has one carb on a manifold.
No one ever got rich restoring motorcycles.
