Description

The ultimate guide to the Norton Commando’s year-by-year evolution and to authenticity

The story of the Norton Commando – conception, design and production, how it compared to the competition (British and Japanese). Insights to the company that built it, and guidance on buying a Commando secondhand, this is the fascinating history of a true British icon and an essential guide for restorers.
Synopsis

This is a meticulously detailed history of the Norton Commando: its antecedents, how it came about, and year-by-year production changes, with detailed technical specifications and contemporary road test reports showing how the Command compared with its rivals. However, the history of the bike cannot be separated from the turbulent story of the company that built it.
Unlike other Norton Commando books, this one also tells you how to buy one of these iconic bikes secondhand – all the pitfalls, what to look for, and what they are really like to live with. Whichever one you choose, it should be fast, agile and good looking ... on a twisty country road, the Commando is famed for its roadholding, and with information on clubs, websites, spares, and the latest modifications and upgrades, this book will help you get the bike you deserve.
Featuring comprehensive appendices of facts, figures, contacts, technical specifiations (including correct colours for each year), engine/frame numbers, and road test performance figures, this is the definitive book of a bike that truly deserves the term ‘classic.'
Additional Information
