Norton 750 on the bench

Finally decided to try and get rid of my 750 Commando but first I wanted to see inside the motor to check all is well before offering it for sale, the engine had allegedly only done around 8000 niles from new.

Just before the head was unbolted

Off it comes

Might as well have the Barrells off as well

All is revealed, very clean and no wear at all

Even the bores and followers are unmarked

So thats it then, a front bolt missing from the head and a gasket which looks like its seen better days and apart from that very happy with the rest. Going to try to get the head blasted and cleaned up then build it again, hopefully it'll run sweet after that then the dilemma will I sell it or not Hmmmm
