Richard’s 750 Commando
Nothing too tricky here; the bike was built by the great Norman White a few years ago, and featured in Classic Bike magazine. It’s a lovely machine, beautifully assembled, and it pulls like a Harley from low revs. But it had developed a strange habit of cutting out the lights at night.
We traced the problem to a loose connection in the ignition switch – just one of those things. We also took the opportunity to add modern connectors and switches wherever it might help, plus a blade fuse rather than the original glass one. Richard also wanted narrower handlebars; the originals were like you’d get on a flat track bike.
A simple but satisfying job.
