Nice looking bike, the drum brake front end, gauges and 20M3S engine etc suggests it is pre 1972 (which has little in common with a 1972 given the multiple changes that year)

The side cover suggests 1970 or before.
Good luck with the sale.

Yeah, it's not all original, but it's all "period" stuff and reasonably decent-looking condition.

...and, it's in CA...
(probably the biggest marketplace for it)

I am amazed you do not know a 1970 or earlier Commando from a 1972 Commando as this thread is suggesting this bike is.
Have you even had a 20M3S Commando as this one is, I guess not.

It looks to be a nice 1970 model which has little in common with a 1972, Combat or non Combat spec.

You are easily amazed!

I never said it was X, Y, or Z, just that it was reasonably decent-looking, and had a fair price tag on it. With CL, you typically bargain for less at the close of the sale. I've seen much worse, sell for much more.

I have had FOUR (maybe it was 5? I forget) 20M3S Commandos, by the way (not that it means anything at all)

I wonder what the VIN on the California title is?
Perhaps the 1970 bike parts put into a 1972 VIN frame?
It is a clean looking rider.
