'69 Norton Commando

Got a call from my friend Jack at The Classic Bike Experience the other day.  Something about a new bike he and his team just finished restoring.  It was going to be shipped off to Florida to its owner but before it left, he wanted to know if we wanted him to bring it over for some pictures.  Of course we did.

What showed up was a beautiful '69 Norton Commando with a blue metal-flake paint that looked so deep you could dive into it. This bike is a classic among classics.  In its day, it was the fastest production twin there was and the brand lives again today with a modern version of the classic cafe style Commando.
