I know its not the right place to post this story but i didnt want to lose it and wanted to share it with all of you guys (... of course i understand if you move it as its not a Commando, sorry for that)



I was living in Ireland when I built it. I'm now back home in California. I still have the Norton but not the motor. As I told you I broke it at a time where you couldn't get parts. The Norton now has an old Weslake speedway engine in it.
As the years pass I no longer road race it but I do run it at El Mirage and Bonneville and am proud to say it hold its class record at both venues. I took very few photos of it but here are a few that I did take. The seat was on because I was going to the Isle of Man (as a spectator not racer) and my wife was coming along.

Sorry Frank, but to be fair to everyone, I've moved it from the Commando section.

In any case, everybody should be able to read it just as well here if they want to?
