For sale: Norton Commando California 961, 50th anniversary edition, 2018 model.
My first gtsmoto custom project is ready. Discreetly modified with high quality upgrades including: Motogadget Motoscope Classic speedo, Motogadget m blaze discs front and m blaze pins rear indicators, TRW clip ons, Highsider Montana mirrors, customised stick welded exhaust system and hand painted details on Nardo Grey paint. It did take several months, three different locations and help of highly skilled young and upcoming craftsmen to finish it but it was well worth the effort.
It is a 50th anniversary edition which includes a carbon fibre front mudguard, carbon fibre rear hugger and numberplate hanger. The fully-adjustable 43mm Öhlins fork, twin piggyback Öhlins gas shocks, lightweight sprocket and assorted chassis parts, are all polished brightly, some to a mirror finish. Also included is a brushed aluminium oil cooler and a chrome chain guard and headlamp bowl/bezel, while the engine has been finished in the classic combo of a silver cylinder head and polished rocker covers sitting on a black cylinder barrel, as first featured on the hotted-up Combat version of the original 745cc Commando back in 1972.
I have acquired it while dealing with one of my Vespas through the insurance company. I went to collect a GTS300 and Norton was sitting there as a category N with scratched tank, footpegs, handlebars, headlamp bezel etc. It was three months old at the time of the purchase and covered less than 200 miles.
The motorcycle can be viewed in West London, preferably during the weekends. Please email me should you need more information or additional images. Please also check my website gtsmoto.com, instagram, and facebook/gtsmoto. Thank you
