The engine in this motorcycle is the storied Norton 745 cc.  It is air-cooled with an overhead valve and parallel twin, two cylinder.  The engine was first released by Norton for the 1967 Commando.  Power rating when new for the engine was a solid 58 HP, produced at 6,500 RPM.  Top speed was noted as 185 km/h.

The Commando was a well-known and popular bike in its time, leading to the following it enjoys today.  It was also well decorated, being awarded “Machine of the Year” by Motor Cycle News an impressive five years running, from 1968 through 1972.


The engine in this example has been rebuilt.  Same goes for the four-speed chain transmission.  Common for extensive rebuilds is for the rebuilder to reset the odometer.  In this case, while the rebuild process was indeed exhaustive, the odometer reading of zero is attributable to new gauges having been installed during the rebuild process.  As such, we must market this machine as TMU – true mileage unknown.

The upgrades installed during the rebuild process do not stop there.  Tires are brand new, zero km.  Front end has also been rebuilt, with new fork tubes.  Ignition has been upgraded to a modern electronic unit.  As well, the gas tank sports a fresh paint job, which helps the bike really pop.
This 1971 Norton Commando 750 motorcycle is offered in Toronto, Ontario with reserve.
