Re: Keanu Reeves with Norton Commando .

Somewhere there's an old Norton's Commando with my handy work on it in the US. A navy buddy a long time ago owned one and cracked the crank case. The internet wasn't in existence, yet and he couldn't find one. He finally bought a slab of aluminum and I milled on out for him. Wasn't the prettiest thing, but it was functional and reasonably polished.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Those were the days when we made , repaired or adapted parts that were unavailable or in short supply rather than get a new part of the shelf . Long gone sadly .

True, now a days, if they can't find ready made parts, they throw them away. We're becoming very disposable.
