1971 Norton 750 Commando
Congratulations to Jerry Doe of Fullerton for winning Bike of the Month with his 1971 Norton 750 Commando. Jerry won a Mr. Pete's Grill gift certificate provided by Mr. Pete's Grill.

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.

Paint was shot by Brent Budgor of in Northfield Vermont.

Jerry is webmaster for an online forum for Norton owners.
