1971 Norton Commando 750 Production Racer
This Norton Commando was completely re-built to closely replicate the famed Norton Commando Production Racer. Through the use of modern precise machining and parts this Commando Production Racer replica is in many ways more powerful, reliable and handles better than the original but retains the Classic factory style.
Norton offered the Commando Production Racer to privateer racers to compete in 750cc production class. It came equipped with lights and was street legal, but not really intended for street use.
The Commando Production Racer came from the factory with a lot of goodies to make it competitive out of the crate. The engines were assembled using blueprinted components including aluminum connecting rods, high comp pistons and the race spec, factory 3s cam. Stock Commando cylinder heads were ported to improve flow. Shorter pushrods, larger valves, and polished rocker arms all help substantially boost the power over a stock Commando engine.
The chassis used a stock Command frame, engine cradle and Isolastic mounts. The front forks were re-valved and fitted with disc brakes. The body work included a reshaped (longer) 4.2 gal alloy fuel tank, half fairing, solo seat and yellow paint made the Commando Production racer unmistakable.
