This Norton Commando is the work of two legends in the Norton world. The mechanical side of the restoration/conversion was done by Kenny Dreer. Dreer is best known in the Norton community as the man who traveled the world to round up the various rights to the Norton name. He then started Norton America, which revived the brand by designing and building the updated Norton 961 prototypes before the project passed on to British owners. The second legend is master metal smith, Evan Wilcox, known to racers and road riders alike as the craftsman who can provide either bodywork replicas in aluminum or new designs to customize a ride to an owner's specification. This 750 Norton Commando is from the 1972 production run and has been completely refurbished by Dreer including the frame, engine, transmission and brakes. Even the alloy rims are new. Finishing the project is the stunning aluminum tank, seat, fenders and side panels by Wilcox. These are in the style of the 961 prototype. The aluminum is accented by black and red coach lines redolent of 50s Norton racers. The bodywork alone catalogs at something approaching $4,000. This cafÃ© racer will allow a new owner a pride of ownership that few motorcyclists experience.
