: Hi, I was put onto your website after putting a plea on the Norton Owners site, and what a fab site it is.
I actually now have two GK Nortons. The first one I bought back in 1980 from SGT, but it was originally an 850 III GK one from '77, and it still bears the GK reg plate. Its now back to standard after going through the usual customising fad.
The second one has recently come into my ownership and I attach two pictures. It no longer has the fairing as the previous owner binned it. I believe the tank and seat are GK, but not sure about the fairing, it seems to have been chopped off. There are also moulded alloy rearset footrests with Gus Kuhn Commando embossed on them, but they are incomplete and are not fitted in the photos. I am part way through restoring it, and would appreciate any advice on the origins of it and replacement parts.
Thanks again Hans E.Taylor.
Thanks for getting in contact. The tank and seat look original, though the racing plate on the seat has been chopped in half! The fairing too has been 'modified', but may well have been original.
