This is a true Dunstall Norton Commando 750. Original Dunstall features include lightweight Borrani alloy rims, dual front disc brakes, alloy front fender, fiberglass fairing, tank and seat, alloy fork yoke with clip-ons, pre-siamese exhaust with balance tube and Dunstall Decibel silencers*, flow tested head with larger inlet valves and machined pistons, performance camshaft, velocity stacks**, rear-set foot pegs, speedo in km (14,000), and 21 tooth countershaft sprocket.
Over the past two years, the bike has been cleaned up and restored to make it look good and more reliable, including Buchanan stainless steel spokes, Avon AM26 tires, new fork tubes, slider seals and gaiters, front brake piston and caliper O-rings, JIC3 brake lines and adapters, Nissen vintage master cylinder with brake light switch, ethanol-resistant Caswell tank coating, re-chromed pipes, levers and chain guard, Barnett throttle, choke, clutch and rear brake cables and clutch plates, Ikon adjustable rear shocks with progressive springs, * Emgo silencers, **Norton and/or K&N air filter, 19-tooth countershaft sprocket, Power-Arc programmable electronic ignition, Podtronics regulator, wheel, transmission and steering head bearings, BUT many of the original parts come with the bike, if the new owner wants to restore it to near-complete originality.
I’ve owned the bike since 1973 and have the factory “despatch” record from Andover Norton showing Paul Dunstall as the first purchaser in July 1970. VIN 138804. For a brief period in the 1980’s, the bike had an 810cc kit, which is in good condition and comes with the bike. The bike also has a cush-drive rear hub, a Norris camshaft for more civilized street use and a Tommaselli shorter-throw throttle twist grip.
The rework was not a ground-up restoration, so the frame, primary cover and points cover have some scratches and there are a few rusty nuts and bolts.
It is an absolute blast to ride.
