Isn't that more than the Belgium crated Commandos, well its only expensive if it sells and I doubt it will.

That is seriously over priced !  And totally over restored as well - it might appeal on the American market but it has lost all it's patina so it doesn't appeal to me. I'm almost surprised that they haven't managed to keep the original Birmingham air for the original tyres yet it is painted (very nicely) in modern paints and the alloy polished to within an inch of it's life as well as lots of rechroming.

If Ian Easton sees this he will notice that the telltales on the headlight are white (as his were) so maybe that was correct for the USA- red in UK.  Several other items seem wrong in comparison to UK spec Jubilees - the ammeter is Lucas style, not Wipac, and the dip switch/horn seems wrong.

Still nice though.
