Troostwijk Auctions Offers 11 New 1975 Norton Commandos

11 brand new 1975 electric-start Norton Interstate motorcycles, still in the crate and awaiting final assembly Found in Belgium. The bikes are part of the stock of a defunct classic motorcycle dealer, all of which is being put up for auction, and you have only until Monday to grab a piece of motorcycle history.

From what I read the owner had a reputation for being difficult to work with. Locals claim he was reluctant to sell any bikes or parts, so he amassed a large collection. The hoard of Nortons came to light recently following the death of the owner of Motoshop Podevyn in Aalst, Belgium. Incredibly, the bikes are just a small part of an even larger collection. The heirs of the shop have decided to sell the entire stock. The bikes and items are to being auctioned by Trooswijk Belgie and the sale ends on Monday, April 26th.

This looks to be an amazing auction, with almost 400 lots offered. How often do you get the chance to even consider buying an essentially brand new, in the crate, unmolested Norton Commando? I am sure they will not go cheap, but it is nice to dream about it.

This seems too good to be true, but take a look at the auction for yourself and let me know what you think? Oh, and you may want to brush up on your Euro- to-dollar conversions so you don't look like an idiot when you pay too much; Troostwijk Auctions

Wow, can you imagine a truck backing up to your garage with one of those crates loaded on it poised for delivery...dream on I guess. Jay Leno will probably buy them anyway...
