The Roadholder forks have been fully overhauled with polished legs. The Norton-Lockheed front disc brake with 10.7 inch solid disc operates perfectly teamed up with the cable operated rear drum brake.
The Commando 850 Engine - Recognisable by its through bolted cylinder block.
This Commando benefits from its original matching numbers 828cc engine that has been fully overhauled and covered 350 miles since, Pazon Electronic Ignition, new wiring harness, charging regulator, single Wassell carburettor, downswept pipes with full flow reverse cone exhausts. The engine is detailed to show standard.
The kick start has been removed and an Alton Electric Start system installed at a cost of over £2,000. She starts instantly on the button hot or cold and idles beautifully.
On the road she sounds amazing, pulls easily, the 4-speed gearbox and clutch operate with ease... Simply a joy to ride.
