Norton Commando ‘Type 16’ By Auto Fabrica

As one of the premier motorcycle customization companies, Auto Fabrica never fails to produce spectacular two-wheel beauties. This time around, the British company injected their sleek, cutting-edge design DNA into the legendary 1971 Norton Commando motorcycle.

A brand new aluminum body with an amplified boat tail was formed for the bike, giving it a fluid vibe. The custom bodywork flows smoothly with the air-cooled parallel twin engine, which was rebuilt with a high-compression head and a two-in-one stainless manifold connecting to an Amal carburetor. The exhaust is sporting Auto Fabrica’s futuristic style with swooping twin stainless steel pipes and internal baffles. The wheels are fitted with moral shouldered rims and stainless steel spokes. Its cockpit is rocking one-off pieces, including wraparound stainless steel handlebars and Tarozzi rear sets. The frame’s principal tube was fairly large, so it was split into the seat unit, acting as an extended oil tank. Wearing a simple silver coat of paint with minimal branding, this is a magnificent example of an iconic bike. [H/T: Bike EXIF]
