Post-Listing Update: After being relisted several times, this Commando Combat did not meet reserve with bidding up to $6,600.
Norton Commando fans know that 1972 was a bad year for the motorcycle. The British firm introduced an upgraded engine, designated the Combat. Unfortunately, the bearings would often self-destruct, rendering the engine useless.
With that said, aftermarket solutions have made it more reliable, letting riders enjoy the higher performance of the Combat. This example (VIN: 209186) is numbers matching and has been ‘completely and mechanically upgraded’, according to the seller. It’s also been modified, with goodies like Ohlins piggyback rear shocks, Brembo front rakes, a Corbin seat, and more.
