Post by cdrkeith » Sun Mar 25, 2018 9:28 am

An absolutely spiffing Norton Commander has appeared on Ebay.....the silver / grey one, I mean. Far too good to miss. K

I know the engine very well indeed.
It was the engine Richard trained me on.
Runs very well indeed
Various rubbish in various states of decay.....

Hi Paul - are you sure? The bike is actually 4180, not 4280, and I did a full engine & gearbox job on 4180 in 2011 for the then owner, Tony. Added a hydraulic clutch and powder-coated the wheels, etc..
First registered April 1990, but manufactured July 1989.
Spent ten days with Tony touring Scotland. Midges & rain! Rain & midges!

Just from the paintwork (wheels) & decals on the photos of my Commander (Ebay / location: Seascale) and your photo above......I would say they were different bikes ?
