Colorado Norton Works is open for business and fulfilling orders. It may take me a couple of extra days to get things shipped but we have a daily UPS service and will go to our local post office once a week. I sincerely hope everyone in our Norton community is staying healthy. You can do worse than being stuck in your garage for a few weeks working on your Commando. If there is anything I can do to help with your project, it is best to contact me via email at Thanks Matt

cNw Complete Rebuild / Body & Finish details

Motorcycles are a very basic form of motorized transportation. The engine, transmission, wheels, brakes, etc. are all hanging out there (at least in the case of vintage and classic machines) for us to see. In recent times, this classic form of motorcycle has even taken a turn toward an art form. The Norton Commando is one of the most beautiful examples of this form with its raked forward engine and the sweep of the exhaust system. At Colorado Norton Works, we strive to maintain the classic Commando form and to deliver it in a clean fresh new package. We apply our own touches to the wheels, brakes, fenders, saddle, and paint scheme to create a Commando that is not only a fresh new look but one that still respects its vintage heritage.

Body & Finish


  •  Rebuilds get either a cNw custom front fender or a stock, stainless, fender depending on model. A stock rear fender is used in both cases
  • For Roadster tank models, Corbin “Gunfighter” saddle is standard
  • For Interstate tank models, cNw exclusive version Corbin “Gunfighter” saddle is available
  • We paint our tank and side cover emblems rather than use transfers. They are smaller than stock ones and more proportional to the size and mass of the motorcycle
  • Gas tanks are cleaned and sealed internally before painting
  • Paintwork done to highest possible standards by our regions premier painter
  • cNw only uses steel body work
  • A new, exhaust system in the classic “pea shooter” style
  • cNw exclusive stainless steel mufflers
  • Stainless muffler brackets
  • cNw stainless muffler mounts
  • Several different handle bars to choose from to suit personal preference
  • Instruments are rebuilt as standard
  • Instrument holders are polished
  • cNw stainless chain guard
  • Oil tank mounts are modified and industrial grade mounting rubbers installed to eliminate the possibility of oil tank fractures
  • A cNw developed oil filter adapter is installed to allow use of common brands of oil filters
  • Virtually every fastener on the machine is polished stainless. Even those that aren’t necessarily seen without removing panels


cNw continuously tries to improve on the Norton Commando rebuilds we offer and any of the above may change through the course of your build, however rest assured that its only to make the machine that much better.
