maybe some Q & A, then?

here's an eBay unit, listed as 1971:

and another, listed as 1972-1975:

they look similar.

i'm ignorant of commando interchanges. will either of these fit a 1970? i'm not worried overly about original-- i just want to be able to park without having to find a tree to lean against.

I think it will fit as will the new replacement version if you drill the engine / gearbox cradle to mount it.
Was the 1970 centre stand attached to the frame like the earlier bikes from 68 up ?

More bikes and projects than you can shake a stick at but they should be done in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

i dont know what the original looked like, as i got the bike without one. my parts manual is just numbers, no illustrations. i'll see if i can take a picture of the mounting tabs on the frame.

i dont recall ever seeing a stand labelled specifically "1970" for sale, oddly.

cheyenne, do you have a picture of your 1969 stand?


i have no idea what i'm doing.

damn.

i didn't realize that norton centerstands were made of impossibilium.

nobody knows where one of these might be found? eBay, craigslist, access norton, and andover are turning up blanks.

I have a 68 commando and my center stand looks like your picture. I have a bin of center stands and kickstands... Let me look tomorrow for you.

part number 06-1116 is the right one-- U-shaped, not the later H-shaped stand. still looking, but i bought a side stand kit from andover so at least i won't need to lean it against a tree any more.

looks like i could fit the later H-shaped stand by drilling out the engine cradle, which is what they did to the 1970 1/2-on machines. but i'd like a stock one if i can find it.


i have no idea what i'm doing.

Maybe there is more than one side stand kit but I got the AN kit for my 1971 Fastback and needed to get the new mounting bracket also to suit it.
I don't know what those earlier bikes have, maybe it will fit the lug if it has one, the 1971 version had longevity issues so it was changed on the bikes afterward to suit the new stand (I guess)

hi les

thanks for your suggestion earlier about drilling the cradle for the later stand. i may end up doing that.

the sidestand system on my machine is the one with the plate bolted near the cross tube and the cast lug attached outboard to it. i have the plate and mounting lug, but someone has attached an OIF triumph sidestand there, which doesn't work. it looks like andover kit will supply all the missing bits.

they're very helpful people, btw.


i have no idea what i'm doing.
