'74 850 Commando

Had the bike about 20 years, over that time its gone through several rebuilds with different cosmetics. Lots of mods some more obvious than others.

beautiful - I've also had my Norton for about 20 years (how'd I get so old?!?)... what kind of swing arm is that?
what other mods have you made - I'm in the process of stripping mine down for a total frame-up rebuild at the moment and have a keen interest...
cheers,
bennett

Love the Fastback styling, also that of the S bike.

It sometimes occurs to me that if I had not decided on Triumph a few years back I would have a Commando in the shed.

In my ignorance I assume that fuel tank is fibreglass ?

Very nice bike, I like the early Fastback styling, the alloy rims are nice too, Are the carburators Mikuni's ?
