    I had a gorgeous black 850 Norton Commando NIB. A 1974 model. Fastest thing on the road other than that straight line rocket triple Kawasaki made. The Kawasaki couldn't take a turn at over 12 MPH though. Loved my Norton.

    This video is most awesome!

    Thank you, OD!

    Very cool . Nice enough looking bike without the transformer mode.

    Very cool! It does bring back memory's! I had both the Kawasaki 750 triple and an 850 Norton Commando. Both were fun bikes but for different reasons! My first wife liked the Kawi so much more for the acceleration, I should have kept the Norton and dumped her! DR
