Hi all,
new member here, though I have been lurking on the forum for close to 2 years after having bought my first Commando.

Hope the Imgur links work and produce a picture or 4.

Thanks Jerry for letting me join this group of knowledgeable and jovial characters.......I have already learnt a lot about Commandos from you guys...thankyou.

Cheers

Please explain about the brake pedal in the second last photo - that looks like an impossible angle?
Cheers

Hi Alan
thanks for the welcome.

Confession time.........I didn't do the restoration.
I was looking for a Commando to rebuild and in the time I was looking saw this one pop up for sale (at a huge price). I spent over 12 months looking for a Commando that Icould fix up to the spec. I wanted and had tallied the $$$ as to what it was going to cost me all up. In the meantime the price of this bike came down below what I had figured I would have to spend all up to build what I wanted, and it pretty much had all the mods on it that I would have incorporated into my build. So I bought it and I reckon I saved money by doing that. I'm still having fun fettling it and trying to iron out some little niggles (part of Brit bike ownership as you know).

So the front brake caliper as I understand it from the PO is actually a Lockheed replica......the disk is a Norvil product (so far OK :) ).

Cheers
Norm

No Norm - I wasn't referring to your bike (which is VERY nice BTW)
I was asking the question of Zefer (one page back #2076 I think) - see below

Wondering what year this model may be..
hard to tell because obviously the chassis, running gear , engine, gearbox , tank, fork and seats have been changed out from a standard Commando yet for some reason I was attracted to this image . It looks like it may offer a significant performance upgrade...
