c
1975 Norton Commando Interstate Mk3.
c
This is one of our winter restoration projects. As we stripped the bike we found that both the chassis and engine had seen better days so it was going to one of our more time consuming restorations.
c
The engine was stripped, the cases blasted and outer covers polished. The tolerances were checked and found at the upper end of the chart, so a re-bore with a set of new pistons and rings, valves, guides, crank shells and bearings it was ready to rebuid.
c
A lot of the chassis parts were in good enough condition to re-use, although new Isolastic rubber mounts were fitted to the freshly painted frame and swing arm. These will help ensures that the “Commando” would handle like new once more! A lot of time was spent refurbishing worn out pivots so, with powder coating, chrome and zinc plating and off-the-shelf parts, the chassis was complete and be ready for another 30 years of use.
c
Most of the perished rubber and worn consumable parts are still available, so with some new paint work on the petrol tank, panels, this beautiful classic British bike was complete. After riding it you can understand how thousands of these machines were sold, and what made them so popular.
