Rusty Old Norton Commando.

Most folks see a bike like this and visualize the “end product” of a restoration after hundreds of hours of work and thousands of dollars spent. I tend to lean the other way. I think a bike like this makes for a great rider. No fussing over every bug splatter. Just ride the damm thing and enjoy yourself. As long as it’s a mechanically safe and sound bike, then you should just revel in it’s patina. Let the vacuum sealed 100 point restoration fanatics stay at home or on the showgrounds.

Remember, “rust never sleeps” but chrome sure does..
