"commando frame differences?"


  

          

Greetings fellow nortonians! Can someone tell me the difference between 1968-1970 commando frames and the 1971- 1974 commando frames? ( correct me if I have the series of years wrong -- ex 68-71?? or 68-70??) Thank you in advance!

The main differences are :
68 first frames were the widow maker without the brace.

68-70 are rear crossbar, center stand on frame.

71 front crossbar but inboard pin type side stand (bad design)

fixed>72-75 *front* crossbar but outboard sidestand/bolt.

73-75 850 have different steering neck angle

MKIII 75 has different front end locking arangement.

sorry** typo my mistake
