About Us

Norton Commando Custom Motorcycle Builders

Welcome to the brand new Colorado Norton Works website

Colorado Norton Works opened its doors in 1997 with the idea to take, what we consider one of the most exciting vintage motorcycles ever built, and bring it to a whole different level of performance, finish and detail. We wanted to do something different and the goal being to bring these bikes back on the road where they belong.

Over the years we here at CNW have developed, sourced and implemented parts and modifications that make these bikes better in every area. These machines are not a ‘restoration’ but rather rebuilds that address all the shortcomings that these machines have. At the same time we are careful not to loose the bikes identity as it’s important to us that they keep the heritage that make them so unique. The results are some truly amazing machines. Take a look in our photo gallery for some examples of what we have created and you will find not only bikes that look very close to a stock Commando, but also some where we wanted to take a fresh approach and push the limits of what could be done.

Part of the exciting process of having CNW build a bike is that we allow our customers to get involved to ensure that the machine we are building truly is unique and exactly what the customer wants. This process is what makes each and every bike we build different. It could be in the detail or it could be something very obvious, either way each bike has a personality of its own. It’s ‘your’ bike. One of a kind.

CNW has become a leader in bringing new parts and improvements to the market in the quest to make these machines as good as they can possibly get. We have also packaged many of these upgrades so that those that want to work on their own bikes can benefit from what we have learned working on these machines. These parts can be found in our parts catalog. Keep checking back as we are continuously adding new and exciting parts and modifications for your Commando. Some are big and some are small but they all have a purpose to improve your bike.

We here at Colorado Norton Works are very passionate about what we are doing and with each and every bike that comes through our shop we feel that we are doing our part in bringing the most usable vintage British motorcycle back on the road….looking and running better than ever. These machines truly are ‘reborn’.

Thanks for taking the time to visit our website.
