Along with the paperwork, you will receive the service write-ups dated back to the original.

At American Biker we have done everything to make sure you are getting a quality vehicle and have freshly service the bike to make sure it is satisfactory!

First Hand Experience:

This bike is as fun to ride as it is to look at. From the start up of the kick-starter it’s easy to see you’re on a Norton. The initial sound of the exhaust and true metal functionality with the turn signals and choke cable all add to this bikes true aesthetic. From the factory these foot controls are swapped but it’s simple to operate. Rear brake is on the left side and your shifting pedal is on the right side. There is nothing like a Norton!

Some Facts:

The Combat Commando engine was introduced in January 1972 which saw the appearance of the Mk4 Fastback, updated Roadster and the 750 Interstate. The Combat delivered 65 brake horsepower at 6500 rpm and had a 10:1 compression ratio. The engine was given an Isolastic anti-vibration system that improved the performance of the machine while reducing vibration to the rider with rubber mounts.

The benefit to the new and improved 750cc engine also came with a better center of gravity for the bike, space for the carburetors and an improved rake for stability. Each detail revolutionizing the Norton brand on the track and on the streets. The history of engineering feats all add up to the smooth handling of this Norton Combat Commando Roadster.

The last of the 750 series, the MkV was produced from November 1972 to mid-1973.
