These feel more like Nortons...
in my opinion. I've owned my 850 Commando since new (1975) and have owned at least three different Triumph 650's ('65 Trophy, 67 Trophy and 70 Bonneville) and I have to say the new Bonny reminds me more of the Norton in engine characteristics and general chassis feel. Pulls right off idle, low vibes, longer wheelbase and slower steering, all feel more Norton to me. If the motor feels like the Triumphs I'd go with the 65 Trophy with the heavier flywheel and single carb.
Just sayin is all. My new-to-me '07 T-100 is a wonderful machine. Love it. Just wondering if my spare Norton Interstate tank will fit...
