1973 Norton Commando 850


This is a numbers-matching 1973 Norton Commando 850 MKII. It starts, runs, and rides well. This was the first production year that the Commando’s displacement was increased from its 725cc predecessor model. The frame had recently been upgraded to its trademark Isolastic System, designed by former Rolls-Royce engineer Dr. Stefan Bauer, which fixed the swingarm to an engine & transmission subframe, isolating the powertrain from the main frame. This improved Norton’s already famous handling. The factory claimed 60hp is made from the 828cc air-cooled OHV parallel twin motor.
