Very special Featherbed Café Racer. 850 Norton engine, fitted with an Alton electric starter. BELT final drive. LOTS of stainless steel, new Sun rims, engine and transmission rebuilt, electrical system redone, LED lights everywhere, new tires. The cost of parts alone is less than the asking price, just getting too old to ride with clip-ons.

Up for sale is my completely restored 1972 Norton Commando Combat with a production racer body kit. This is a numbers matching bike with clean title. The mileage on the bike is 4689, and the restoration was done at 4089 miles. I built this bike to be a reliable, mostly leak free, fast, classic English bike for everyday riding. I have not had the time to ride it as much as I had hoped, so I have decided to list it for sale. I love this bike, but it is spending too much time sitting in my garage. It starts 2nd or 3rd kick when cold, or 1st kick when warm. It only leaves a drip or two on the floor after a few weeks of sitting, so it is pretty sealed for a classic English bike. I have never ran ethanol in it and it has used only high quality Brad Penn oil since rebuild. The combat engine is very fast for a classic bike. I still have all the original parts that have been removed except for the original fuel tank. I also have all receipts from the rebuild process. This was a frame…

I am sure that there is something I forgot. Point is that the bike has had a lot of time and money spent to make it into a reliable daily rider. Has never left me on the side of the road. Starts on the first or second kick.
Has a few period parts Dunstall fairing. Not in the best shape. Can see some poorly done repairs. Dunstall pipes, sound great! Rearsets, I think…

I've made a decision to sell one of the Vincent Rapides. This bike was restored end to end by the man many consider the world's best Vincent engine builder and restorer- John McDougall. The list of new parts that went in to the bike is pages long and can be emailed on request. John did not mess about when restoring, he built only for serious long haul use, no compromises. The quality of his work is legendary in Vincent circles. The bike has only covered 2300 miles since the complete restoration.
