Fresh Canary Yellow

This 1972 Norton Commando got a fresh coat of paint by Sonny Naylor, which is the actual Canary Yellow according to Don Hutchinson, where the paint was sourced from, simply because it’s right. I had posted back in May ’16 that the bike was completely original, but I was apparently naive and deceived. We also sent the cylinder head out to James Comstock to have the exhaust ports re-threaded. An excellent solution to a common problem with these old bikes. The Unapproachable Norton!!

Yes, it’s missing the newly painted side covers. I think the owner of the bike is displaying them in his den.
