1971 NORTON-SEELEY Café Racer Retired CEO downsizing personal motorcycle collection. The motorcycle offered here is NOT STREET LEGAL. This bike has been “out of circulation” for the past 40 years as part of a personal collection. The bike is powered by a 750 Norton Commando engine (performance modifications listed below) which has never been broken-in. Chassis is by Colin Seeley, renown frame designer from England. This is the Seeley Mk 3 frame. The engine is used as a stressed-member of the frame and has no downtubes. It is made of SIF bronze, hand brazed, Reynolds 531 chrome- moly tubing. One glance tells you this is not a production unit sold to the public. The frame, including bushings and bearings, weighs 25 pounds. Enlarge the photos and look closely at the frame welds. Each is a hand polished work of art. Every surface invites scrutiny to fully appreciate its beauty. Polished Amal Carbs with velocity stacks draw fuel from the handmade aluminum tank and feed the high performance 750 Commando engine. Dry weight is approximately 300lbs being pushed by 65-70 HP—an excellent power to weight ratio. In 1969, four of the top ten bikes in the Isle of Man TT Race, used Seeley frames. This remarkable piece of racing history is suitable for display in a museum, the centerpiece of a personal collection, or race in the AHRMA class. It has been beautifully preserved. This machine is the predecessor of today’s commercially offered sports/café bikes. It is mechanically sound and cosmetically stunning. The engine pulls like a locomotive and emits a thunderous noise through its open megaphones. Observers are often bewildered and overwhelmed by the exhaust note and brutish engine. This motorcycle has never been safety-wired. Engine has never been broken-in since speed mods were made. Brake rotors show no scoring from use.
