Andover Norton's page of history photos includes these gems of a 500cc Commando in the 1971 TT.
Fascinating...
Obviously a dominator gubbins slotted into a Commando.

Richard Negus (entrant) and Tom Waterer rider.
But history records it came in 33rd, 'insufficient power' was mentioned.
Obviously not a domiracer power unit then...

1972 gets a mention elsewhere ??
