Amazing find. The bike is perfect from top to bottom. One one the most beautiful modern classics we have seen.

The original Norton Commando first saw the light of day all the way back in 1967. Production spanned ten years, and the Commando was crowned “Machine of the Year” by the U.K.-based Motor Cycle News for five consecutive years, starting with its sophomore year in ’68 and running through ’72.

Norton Motorcycles re - introduces us to the Commando with the 961 MK II family that brings classic, British style and modern engineering together.

A traditional, double-cradle / double-downtube frame supports the engine and mounts a tiny oil cooler just south of the steering head where it has a minimal impact on aesthetics. Air-cooling precludes the need for a radiator, and so the front of the frame is wide open with an unimpeded view of the engine. The steering head angle gives us a 24.5-degree rake with 3.9 inches of trail, and those figures along with the compact, 55.9-inch wheelbase make these bikes very agile indeed.
