There's been two new Tornado 650s on Ebay in the UK this weekend as pointed out to me by Benellioldman. Neither is perfect but neither is bad given the age of these things. If you want perfection then I feel I should point out the following minor bloopers on the more expensive machine 'cos if you're going to pay £3k plus you want it right:
That seat's a minger but has to be more comfortable than STD
Rear light glass
Side panel stickers
Engine badges - not sure about this though
Idiot light lens
Some stainless fasteners
Clutch cable clamp at front of tank
Original Lafranconi silencers with the elaborate stamp
Domed tank badges
Correct choke lever
Correct throttle adjusters
Reading the text: I'd love to see proof that the standard Tornado is faster than a Commando - mine is most definitely not, if you want a fast parallel twin buy a Laverda! The starters on the S can work ok.
Looking at the £4.3KGBP the previous Tornado fetched last week anyone want to swap my spanking Tornado for a Norton 650SS ??
