    1973 Norton 850 Commando Custom/Hot Rod

    Well, it ain't a T-Dub but it will have to do!
    The best bike I ever built and favorite of any I ever owned.
    May I present "Nort". Clever name, huh?

    Ya gotta click 2 times to see the big pic.

    Thanks boys...she ran even better than she looked!

    And to see the prettiest parts of the whole bike, you'd have to look inside the engine...it was very special.
