Norton Commando and Dominator - Motorbike Greetings Card LM16


Classic motorbike greetings card featuring a Norton Commando and Norton Dominator (background).
Norton produced a number of excellent motorcycles post war with the two seen here being their most successful. The Dominator had started life in 1947, when designer Bert Hopwood penned a new 500cc engine to compete with the Triumph Speed Twin. While the Model 88 Dominator seen here handled beautifully due to the famous 'Featherbed' frame it was felt that more power was needed, resulting in the progression through 600cc to 650cc in the SS Model. 

To replace the Dominator as the flagship motorcycle, Norton released the 750cc Atlas, however this final increase in capacity was too much for the rider as vibration became a major problem. Curing this became a vitally important step for Norton and a new frame with isolastic mounts for the engine to reduce vibration to a manageable level was designed by Dr. Stefan Bauer and his team. Fitting the engine into a restyled motorcycle created one of Britain's only 'superbikes', the 750cc Commando, first produced in 1969. 

A perfect greetings card for a classic motorcycle enthusiast.
