Matt Rambow and his team at Colorado Norton Works make some beautiful stuff, and their latest creation – an Electric Start Conversion for the pre-MK3 Norton Commando is no exception.

The cNw kit, found here is actually very reasonably priced at $2,495 if you consider that it includes a belt drive primary.

As always with Colorado Norton Works, the quality of the fit and finish is second to none.

If you don’t want a highly polished finish, there are option for satin and matt black too.

Matt supplies a starter button with his kit, as the quality of the original switches were dubious when they were new. That makes it difficult for Matt to support, and guarantee the reliability, hence shipping his own.

However, of the people I have spoken to, most want to use the original handlebar switch gear, and make use of the ‘spare’ button that Norton themselves never got round to using (the MK3 used different handlebar switches)

Here follows the Norton Commando pre-MK3 wiring diagram with the addition of the Colorado Norton Works Electric Start Conversion

The diagram uses the original Lucas switch gear:

I will post a diagram that includes Tri-Spark electronic ignition and Podtronics reg/rec too.
