Jerry bought his 750 Commando from Craigslist back in 2013 for $800 (no, she did not look like this; she needed a lot of work).
Restoration was finished in the fall of 2015. Jerry also has an 850 Commando MKIII. The engine has an number of extensive upgrades; cams, pushrods, valves, carb, belt drive, etc.
