1974 Norton Cafe Racer: Vintage Dunstall Goodness

With the holiday season fast approaching and the end of the year right after that, many spend this time reflecting on the past.  They wax poetic about the good old days and times past.  No reason not to do so in a motorcycle context as well.  Even more so when epic vintage bikes like this Norton Commando are on the market.  This era of motorcycle is seen as the birth place of the modern sports bike.  A time when the lines between race and road blurred.

Norton Commandos need very little introduction.  Instantly recognizable and universally loved for the iconic style and sound.  The market for clean stock examples is on fire these days, but it has been a while since a tuned racer has been offered to the public.  This bike is not some cosmetic cafe racer built with a fairing bolted on and a cut seat.  This one was built by the one and only Kenny Cummings of NYC Norton.   Anyone that is not familiar with his work should spend some time digging around his website.  It is filled with amazing street and race bikes.  He is the go to guy in this world, so it is amazing to see one of his bikes for sale.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

1974 Norton Commando For Sale

I am selling my Norton Commando Dunstall Café Racer.

The bike was built as a Dunstall café racer by NYC Norton’s Kenny Cummings about ten years ago.

I then couldn’t resist turning it into a Production Racer for a few track days.

It is now back in its “street legal” Dunstall form.

Over $17,000.00 in shop bills alone not including the original donor bike, wheels, tires, paint, powder coating, etc. etc.

Bike comes with:

· Black NOS Dunstall fairing, fiberglass tank, two up seat and other Dunstall accessories.

· Mick Hemmings floating front disk brake and alloy front wheel.

· Dave Taylor Head Steady

· Steve Maney Belt Drive.

· Boyer Electronic Ignition.

· Mikuni 32mm Carburetors.

· Buchanan rear alloy wheel.

· Avon Race Tires/ Street tires.

· Re-laced steel wheels with stainless spokes.

· Build sheets available.

· More pictures available.

· Receipts available.

· Dyno charts. (58 H.P.) @rear wheel.

· Spare Avon “sprint” fairing.

· Pit Bull stand.

The seller highlights a laundry list of top tier components used in the build, and even quotes an eye watering bill from NYC Norton for all the work.  At a starting price of $10,000 on the eBay listing, there is no way anyone could duplicate this bike for that number.  Unsure where the reserve is, so it will be interesting to watch the listing and see where bidding goes.  A bike like this offers a very versatile option to a buyer.  It can be an entry ticket into vintage racing, a sure fire conversation piece at the local bike night, an exciting weekend ride or just something beautiful to stare at in the garage.

Revisit: 1974 Harley-Davidson RR350 (Aermacchi 350)

Harley Davidson RR350 for sale

We first saw this bike (I believe it’s the same one) in 2011 when Ian wrote it up in a post he titled The 70′s, HD And Things That Rattle: 1974 Harley-Davidson RR350 (Aermacchi 350). It looks to be back with some update photographs. At the time it was bid up past $27k and the reserve wasn’t met. I don’t know if it sold privately or if this is the same seller, but this time it’s wearing a buy-it-now of $25k — which is down from the $33,500 from just a few days ago when the listing started.

from the seller:

The RR350 Racer is one of 26 originally made. These racers were hand built in the Aermacchi Harley-Davidson plant in Varese, Italy for the sole purpose of road racing. This bike has the twin disc front brakes, double leading shoe rear brakes, 6 speed transmission, Ceriani forks, water cooled, Dansi electronic ignition and is in the legendary Harley-Davidson racing colors. These machines were similar in design and performance to the Yamaha TZ twins and were successful in national events. Harley Davidson imported a number of 250′s to compete in AMA road races, but the 350 is virtually unknown. This bike, the engine is brand new and I have all the documentation to prove that. All hoses have been replaced on radiator and as you see in the photos the brake calibers are being completely rebuilt. The lower and top fairing are flawless and tires are race ready.
