I guess it is time to introduce myself to the board. I have had a motorcycle problem ever since I was four years old and it manifested itself again this week. I picked up a very nice 1973 Norton 850 commando. As all bikes do, it needs a little work but it will be on the road soon.

I hope to get to know a lot of you and not ask to many silly questions. I will try and not start any oil or tires threads, for a while anyway. grin

Here is the new/old Brit beast as it arrived home.



Cheers.

Marc

Welcome, it looks like you've got a nice Norton there that doesn't need much but riding.
