In the past, I’ve featured plenty of Commandos that have been modified with Dunstall parts. Here’s a much more special version – one of the few bikes that came out of Dunstall when it was a separate manufacturer, incorporated so it could go racing. Say hello to this beautifully restored Dunstall Norton Commando.

This Dunstall is being offered by the second owner – the first had it from ’69 to ’81, and the bike was restored early this year. The original build sheet will be included as proof that this bike was ordered from Dunstall’s ’68-’68 catalog.

This specific Dunstall Norton Commando (VIN: 127900) and has 4,708 miles on it. The build sheet shows plenty of work, but it’s based on a Commando frame and Commando 745cc engine – the latter of which received a Mk. 3 street camshaft, 10:1 pistons, bronze valve guides, and more. The bike also features Lyster disc brakes (but it comes with the original twin leading shoe front wheel), a GT fairing, 3.5 gallon tank, clipons, and even red fork gaiters.
