1973 Norton Commando 750 Cafe Racer – Very Clean!

UPDATE: The auction closed at $8,201. Wow. Seems like it should have gone for more given the clean looks and recent rebuild of the mechanicals.
Up for auction on eBay right now is this super clean 1973 Norton Commando 750 that has been done up as a super clean cafe racer. The whole motor/transmission appears to have been rebuilt (photos of the motor internals), and lots of new parts have been installed. However, I think it is the aesthetics that make this bike stand out. This is just a flat out beautiful motorcycle. It has already moved above reserve, so someone will be buying this bike. Cool stuff!
