"72 Norton Combat Commando"


          

I just bought my original 72 back from my brother - in pieces. Will be looking for parts, advice, etc. a lot to get it restored to original shape. Glad I found this site.

Thanks. I will. I took 6 months to restore a 100 yr old pool table and knew nothing about it. Now its the nicest pool table in the area. I know more about this bike and plan to completely restore it. Down to the frame.

Not much activity on this thread.
No questions asked about nortons.
My first (current) combat was $225 and I completely tore it down and it became the focus of my restoration efforts with resulting education which has continued on many other nortons since 1987.

I have a 72 norton also. You can look around your area for people that are into Brit Iron and possibly find someone with parts but people with parts are some times hard to find. The place I go to is M.A.P. Enterprises out of florida.

I don't remember the web site at the moment, but you should be able to find it on google. M.A.P. has a downloadable catalog and a downloadable price list and the offer parts for almost ALL brit bikes. Hope this helps you out.

Peace.

I had a couple of them, wrenched on quite few Commandos. I built Norton road race bikes for a while in the '80's. I just saw your post, I figure you might be still getting the beast. If not, enjoy the ride- if so, let me know, I've not forgot my Norton-fu. I don't get on Brit-Iron much, I've got a '72 Triumph Bonneville T120V these days, not a Norton, but not (insert other brand here), either. I'm determined to correct all the things I hated about the Triumphs I had in the past. It's a daunting task!
