Motorcycles — old Norton, 2 Harleys

These bikes are in the shop of Steve Main in Pt. Arena, Calif. The (black) Norton is a ’68-’69 850 Commando that was found in a barn and restored. Steve says the owner has put on 20,000 miles in the last 4 years.

The two Harleys are for sale (the Norton isn’t). The Pearl grey one (at left) is an 883 HD Sportster. $4500 or will trade for an ATV. The silver one (below) is a ’99 Dyna Super Glide and is $7000.

I like these compared to the overloaded steroided-up chromed–out Harleys you see these days. (In college I had a Harley ’45, it was like a farmer’s motorcycle, cheap, simple, dependable.)

If interested call Steve at 707-882-2818.
