Completely rebuilt by Ken Armann’s British Restoration shop in Campbell Ca. 5 years ago and always maintained to a very high standard. This bike runs strong and rides fantastic. It’s the real deal a real 1970 “S” type. This multi show winner is also a rider, seen and dozens of club rides this bike never fails to impress the on looker as well as the rider. The fire flake blue against the glistening chrome makes this rare roadster a real gem.

The 1970 "S" Type Roadster was one of the fastest Commandos built, Cycle World road test (1969) had the bike at 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. The note from the high exhaust is unmistakably Norton, The "S" Type was the base model for the famous Factory Production Racers and Gus Kuhn's "yellow Peril" . The special “S” cams and gearing gave the “S” Type incredible acceleration and a very strong mid-range.
Unique frame, headlight halo, rear tail fairing, high pipes, rear fender and seat were some of the distinctive parts setting the “S” Type apart from the standard Roadster or the “R” Type. Genuine “S” Types are quite rare but many have modified their bikes to resemble the “S” because of its stylish looks and legendary performance.
