Unrestored 1971 Norton Commando 750

This is how I like to the find them. Almost all original and not restored. Bikes are only original once. I know that a concourse restore will collect more money but for me an unrestored bike is worth more and that’s what we have here.

1971 Norton Commando on eBay

Check out the sellers description.

I’m selling my very original 1971 Norton Commando 750 fastback steel tank  – 2 Owner, unrestored, all numbers match including the frame, engine case and gearbox.

13,120 Original Miles – Clear title

Frame: 143249

Engine: 20M 3S/143249 (Wolverhampton Engine)

Gearbox: 143249

An excellent example of an original condition Commando – This bike is unrestored, even the seat is original and in excellent condition for its age. This bike would make a great winter project to clean up and polish her back to original condition. Never laid down, unmolested except a Boyer Electronic Ignition has been added, K&N air filter (original airbox and filter is included) and the exhaust pipes have been replaced with aftermarket. Includes toolkit.

Starts first or second kick. Runs and drives supurb, like stepping back into time. This bike can be driven as is with all of its history. Does not smoke, leaks a little bit of oil but what British machine does not. Tachometer needs to be rebuilt, good battery.

To the best of my knowledge, this bike was originally bought from The King  Motorcycle Sales in Brooklyn NY and driven in New Jersey through the 1970’s this bike then moved to MN in the early 1980’s where it now calls home. Stored winters – driven summers

I am selling this bike in “as is” condition. I can make the bike available for inspection within 24 hour notice, I will respond to requests for additional photos or questions. I reserve the right to cancel this listing at any time.

Matching numbers? I like matching numbers. What a great example of motorcycle history.

  1. God, that’s beautiful. Pushes ALL the right buttons! It gives me visions of buzzing along an autumn highway scene @ 6/10ths pace. Take in the twisties and the fall colours.


    Best of luck to seller and buyer!
