Is that the glass tank or the original? If that's steel I should be able to un-fuck it pretty easily. Doesn't look like it got too hot, considering. :big_boss:

Oh....you suck!! :buttrock:

Can definitely save the original. Were the fenders body color or chrome?

Any chance there's enough left of the glass tank to pull a mold? Then ya could make as many as ya want.

you could outsource it heres there price!

The 2011 Custom Rebuild Price A complete custom rebuild for a CNW Commando is $26,950. This price assumes that you will be providing an intact donor bike. Most Norton Commandos are sound re-builders, but hidden problems may exist in the frame, transmission or engine. After a thorough inspection of your donor bike, customers are notified of the final price of the rebuild before any work commences.
