1975 850 Commando Mk. III.
Bought it from the Motorcycle and
. It had been kept in a climate-controlled space, started every week, and
ridden periodically. And, it looks exceptional, as you can see in the

such as a Boyer electronic ignition and a Mikuni carb to replace the original
twin Amals. It has a new set of chrome free-flow pipes from RBK motors in
. The 1975 model also came with an electric start, and this bike has the
electrical/starter upgrades that are recommended, such as a 220 kit and 4 gauge
wire, a rebuilt four-brush starter and a gel cell battery. So, the
electric start works great on this bike, which is not always the case for the
All identification numbers match (on the Commando, the numbers are stamped on
the neck of the frame, the engine block, and what seems to be the rear swingarm
frame). The bike shows 320 miles on the speedometer after a light
restoration in 2005 at the museum (including new starter, clutch, alternator,
and top-end-I have all the records for this). I am sure the bike has more
original miles than this, it is 32 years old after all, but don't have any
records of this.
Price is $8,500. Let me know if you have any questions or would like more
pictures. Bike is in
