1973 Norton Commando Interstate
There was a time when motorcycles didn’t have subtitles. There were no “dual sports,” “adventure tourers,” “sports bikes,” “baggers,” “cruisers,” “dirt bikes.” There were just motorcycles and you did with them what you needed to do with them. You would find the best bike you could, you would throw on knobby tires and race it off road or you would slap on the biggest windshield you can find and steal a milk crate to tie to the back and off you’d go. Sometime in the ’70s that began to change. One of the first offerings from an established company to catch on to this trend was Norton. The Interstate took advantage of the Commando’s fine engine and comfortable chassis, added a wider seat, slightly longer mufflers for less rider fatigue and a massive gas tank to eliminate the need for frequent stops. A “mile muncher” they’d call it now.
It’s still a Commando. But it’s made for the Interstate.
Matching numbers and clear title, this is a tidy old bike with lots of life left in her.
