This is the 1975 E-start Commando I owned a few years back. It was quite a looker and performer;absolutely stock,and originally purchased new by a airline pilot in Ohio. I didn’t suffer any electricalprobs as others did. I preferred the 1975 model for the shift location, and that black/gold/alloy visual combination was stunning……
I was looking through some old Daytona pictures and when I saw this one I realized that I’d seen them before (or later on actually) at the Riding into History show. I think I’ve posted them here individually already Link. Here they are together.
