Often we get calls from folks who have a lot of ideas.  Our job is to distill some of this creativity and focus it into something useable.  Our client Andy Ronald is one of these creative customers.  Andy rides hard, and knew he wanted a sporty Norton, but he also wanted something whose seating and control position wasn’t so aggressive that the bike couldn’t be used for any distance travel.  We knew immediately the motor build we would do, but worked closely with Andy over time on the finer details of the jewelry hung off the sturdy Commando frame.  The result was a very quick Commando with the right amount of customization to make it a standout on any highway, bike show, cafe, or race track while making it a pleasure to ride.  Some of the fine detail must be seen up close to be appreciated.

NYC Norton restores and upgrades all Commando/Atlas/Featherbed-framed bikes (and other marques too).  Please enquire at info@nycnorton.com
