After the debacle of the Combat engine, Norton was glad to move on into the MkV forms of the Roadster, Interstate, and Hi-Rider. In the process, they got rid of the Fastback. Commando fans will note that this paint livery is similar to what was on the 850 bikes – that’s because this roadster was recently repainted with the iconic red/white/blue scheme…minus the red.

This bike (VIN: 220566) has 15,261 miles and it’s said to be a great running, well maintained example.

The bike also features Pazon electronic ignition and it’s said to start on the first or second kick.
