To mark the 50th anniversary of the Legendary Commando, a rare model of a 1968 Commando will be featured at the show. The Norton Commando was first shown at the Earls Court, London motorcycle show in late 1967. The first models arrived in April 1968, the bike featured a 750 cc engine which was “canted” forward and fitted in a totally new frame. Designed by Dr. Stefan Bauer and termed the “Isolastic” frame as it “isolated” the drivetrain from the main frame. Commandos were produced until 1985 and has a legendary following within the British motorcycling community.
