1971 Norton Commando 750 Fastback

Geoff Soule of Huntington Beach won Bike of the Month this month with his 1971 Norton Commando 750 Fastback.

Geoff has only owned this bike for about six months and he bought it from another member. It has new paint and he went through the entire bike, replacing the bearings in the headset and swingarm.

This Fastback has a full Factory Racer front end including the brakes, fork and controls which include a 1/4 turn throttle. It has a Dunstall rearset and a new set of YSS shocks.

Geoff has brought this bike to the meet before, and it's always been one of my favorites. With over 80 bikes at the meet today, there were really only about 12 in the running for Bike of the Month.

There are many shots of this bike in the September Gallery. Thank you Geoff for bringing it to the meet.

The Bike of the Month contest is held monthly at the Vintage Bike OC meet. Qualifying motorcycles must be 30 years old or older. Former Bike of the Month winning bikes are not eligible to win again.
