Celebrating 50 years of the Commando

It is 50 years since the launch of the Norton Commando at The Earls Court Show in 1967, and so, at Ardingly on Sunday, October 29, at the suggestion of Surrey NOC, the anniversary is to be celebrated.

Norton guru Peter Williams is guest of honour, and motorcycles to appear include his innovative original 1973 JPN monocoque, a genuine Thruxton Commando, an original 1963 500cc Dunstall Domiracer, one of the first fastback Commandos and a Seeley Commando.

The show is at the South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex, RH17 6TL,
with details from www.elk-promotions.co.uk or 01797 344277.

Commandos of all shapes and sizes will be celebrated at Ardingly.
