On a slightly different note - a mate of mine has a 850 Commando from the mid 70's that's been sat in his garage for over 20 years - mint as far as I can see, what a waste.

Hopefully the administrators can sort out the reaserch and development grants which can pay the tax man and the company can continue.

I remember in the mid sixties I think it was, being left with a mate's almost new Norton Jubilee (250 if I recall) to sell for him as he was going in the navy. He wanted  £28 and that's what it went for. I wonder what it would be worth now. Lovely bike and way above my means at the time.
