1972 Norton Commando Roadster

Owned by Eric Hoover, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Motorcyclist Magazine in July 1971 wrote of the Norton Commando, “Go look for Corvettes and GTO’s. They can’t bother you… one of the wildest motorcycles we’ve ever ridden.” The stylish Norton Commando was generally acknowledged as the “super bike” of its era due to its strong 750 cc vertical twin engine and superb handling. This award-winning matching-numbers Commando with a “Combat” engine is unrestored except for replacement of wear parts as needed. It has a 5.5 second 0–60 time and a top speed of 110 mph.
