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! We change 'em up every month.

The bike is for sale so make sure to get in touch with Andy if you're looking to add a Norton to your stable!
