Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When the book says "essential buyer's guide", that's what it means. The book covers a minimal amount of history (enough to be useful but not in the depth of some other books). But what it does cover is what you need to know if you're looking at buying a Norton commando.

It covers what to look for in general when it comes to buying a second hand bike and the idiosyncrasies of the norton commando. Running costs and valuations are also covered, along with what tends to go wrong and how to fix it.

About the only niggle with the book is just how thin and small it is. There is a lot of useful information but very little fluff. But if you're going to buy a commando there's a good chance the cost of the book will pay for itself in avoiding a dog.

Norton Buyer's Guide 4 Oct. 2010

This book is a disappointment - I thought it would be like the Moto Guzzi or Honda buyer's guides. It is weak on specific detail variations for model changes.

Although I have all available books and manuals concerning my Norton Commando, I gleaned valuable new information about my bike from this little book.

Small book, some essential information but rather dated and less for the American market. If gotten cheap it's worth having...

Really excellent and very well detailed. A must read for anyone considering a purchase of an old Norton Commando.
