Norton Commando Fastback - June 2017 Window Bike
June's window bike was this original 1969 Norton Commando Fastback owned by local collector Andy who acquired it with a number of other bikes from a collector in Calgary.
The Norton Commando was hailed as 'Machine of the Year' for 5 consecutive years by Moto Cycle News 1968-1972. It's isoelastic frame was designed to tame the motors vibrations which had only gotten worse as the engines basic design had increased from 500cc to 750cc.
Really cool to see a fairly original example up close and personal. I really dig the exhaust with it's smooth and subtle design. While not in our window at the time of posting this please take a look at our photos below. Be sure to take a spin by and check out the latest bike we have in our window!
