750 Commando On Ebay

Up for sale we have a excellent restoration project for some lucky punter out there in Feebay land
Matching engine and frame numbers on this 1969 750cc Commando. which is fitted with genuine Dunstall fairing and seat unit sadly the tank did not come wit the bike when I bought it. The engine also has the dunstall style finned rocker covers so I think the new owner would be wise to do some research and see if this is a genuine Dunstall or a bike with after market body kit. either way this bike is a great core for anyone wanting to restore a Norton commando.
The old girl was purchased in Oregon last year and shipped back by myself in November along with a few more in the container, the engine kicks over fine and is not seized although a full restoration would always require a full tear down if you are wise.
The pics say it all well worth restoring .
comes with NOVA document and will require a £25 dating cert from the Norton owners club to register in the UK, this is quite simple once the bike is MOTd and insured.
for the eagle eyed out there the fairing is loosely installed using genuine Norton poly prop rope LOL fitted just for pics.
any questions ask, have faith
happy to ship anywhere, you organise and you pay.
happy bidding

Genuine UK supplied Dunstall






What we have here is something super rare! Rare to ever come across a genuine CB900 Dunstall. Even rarer to come across one that has less than 5k miles on it from new…… and even rarer to have it with full owner history and documentation verifying mileage.


This is a genuine Dunstall bike, complete with the official Dunstall plate on the frame with the Dunstall construction number. Originally supplied by Mike Hailwood and Rod Goulds dealership in Birmingham,  this shows on the original number plate and in the DVLA ownership history. The last owner applied to the DVLA for the full ownership history of the bike so everything is there to see the life of the bike.

The DVLA ownership history shows that the first owner, after taking delivery in 1980 from H & G, sold it to his brother at the same address in 1982 then bought it back from him in 1986, and then sold it to a neighbour two doors down in 2010. The previous owner then bought it in March 2014 and we acquired it from him in 2016 as he was downsizing his collection. So as you can see this is a very low ownership bike (especially as 3 of the 5 owners the bike were actually at the same address), all fully documented.


Along with the DVLA ownership history document, there are a handful of old invoices for works / parts for the bike, the previous MOT’s (only been MOT tested 4 times its life; 1991, 2010, 2011, 2016), and a couple of original Dunstall brochures.

Mileage Verification:

Mileage on the clocks is currently showing 4,389 miles. From looking through the paperwork with the bike this is the verification of the mileage history;

23/11/88 – Invoice from P.A.C. Motorcycle Specialists in Willenhall showing 3,999 miles
09/07/91 – MOT showing 4,017 miles
05/06/10 – MOT showing 4,202 miles
01/07/11 – MOT showing 4,365 miles
08/09/16 – MOT showing 4,387 miles
Current clock reading 4,389 miles


The bike has clearly been very well stored over the 37 years since it was manufactured, and is testament to the previous owners and their love for preserving this special bike. The engine looks fantastic, like it is only a year or so old. All the clocks, switches, handlebars etc all looks immaculate and almost unused.

As mentioned above, there is a Dunstall brochure in the documentation with the bike (see photos). This I believe shows this actual bike. Well maybe not this “actual” bike, but what this bike would have looked like when new. It appears that at some point in its life a previous owner has had the tank and side panels repainted to get rid of the rather bold “DUNSTALL HONDA” name and just replaced it with the graded out gold band and just the simple “HONDA” name on there instead. It has to be said though, that the paint on the tank and the side panels wasn’t done too well and as such you can see some micro blistering on the tank paint along with some small chips / flaked off bits, and you can even still see the ghosting of the “DUNSTALL” name through the paint on the tank when you look in the right light. I have tried to show this on one of the photos, however it is hard to pick up with a camera.

We have just had the bike valeted today and the paintwork is much brighter now, although there were several high and low spots in the paint on the tank and the low spots are a bit more visible now due to the polishing. First photo on the listing shows the bike after the valet today (23/03/17)

The only none original thing is the stainless steel full Delkevic exhaust system we have just put on the bike today (16/03/17). The original Dunstall one I guess would just have corroded at somepoint in the last 37 years, and the previous owner put a Motad exhaust on it, but it was a big ugly thing and I dont know why they used it, so we have put this much better quality and more appropriate looking Delkevic system on. We chose this system rather than just a replica Dunstall end can, as the replica’s aren’t badged correctly so wouldn’t be 100% correct anyway, and they are pretty cheaply made. The Delkevic system though is a similar style but has the benefit of being a full stainless system so ideal for a collectible bike that is likely to be in storage a long time, so wont rot. Pictures updated today 16/03/17 showing the new exhaust on the bike.


The bike was MOT’d in September last year and passed without a single advisory. We acquired the bike in October and when it arrived with us it fired up and ran for a short period, then died. We then put the bike in to storage and have not touched it again until now. We pulled the bike out today and got a full charge in to the battery. The bike fired up but was only running on cylinders 1 and 2. As it is 3 and 4 not running that rules out the coils as being the issue as one coil supplies cylinders 1 and 3, and the other supplies 2 and 4. So I can only assume it is a bit of crap in the carbs on 3 and 4 preventing it from running on all 4. We will get the bike through the workshop before the buyer picks it up though to ensure it is running right and on all 4 before you take it.

All electrics and switches etc all seem to operate perfect.
