Re: Green Commander for sale in the Netherlands

Go to Marktplaats.NL and search for Norton Commander and you will find the bike.
It's from Portugal with now a Dutch Registration.
There is mentioning of an S behind the enginenumber? This should be very special?
I never seen or heard about this...
Perhaps Richard knows?

Parts for Norton Rotary-bikes

For those who don't do Facebook;
Karl Smith of Andover-Norton has asked the question (on Facebook) what parts we all might need now and near future for our Nortons.
They will then see what possibilities they have to stock up or having stuff made.
