Following his retirement from racing in 1959, Paul Dunstall started to concentrate on tuning and fabrication work. Based in his scooter dealership, Dunstall was soon attracting Norton riders with various parts, most famously his swept back exhaust pipes plus various other parts such as rear-sets, trimmed mudguards, Goldstar-type silencers, bum-stop seats and alloy fuel tanks sourced from Italy. In 1961, the first 'Dunstall Special Parts Catalogue' was released and in 1964, the scooter business finished and Dunstall became an authorised Norton agent. In 1962, Dunstall purchased the Domiracer stock, and soon started making complete bikes as well as aftermarket parts. Various Norton models were given the full Dunstall treatment including Dominator Model 88, 99, 77, 650SS and the 750S Commando. Dunstall Dominators were not only produced for the road, but were very popular and successful as production racers.
Offered in striking yellow, this Norton Commando by Dunstall is in original condition and we are informed was running, but has not been used for a number of years so may need some light re-commissioning. Offered with a Vehicle Certificate of Entitlement due to being imported from California in 2008, but not registered at present, this is a great opportunity to own a very rare Dunstall Commando.
