Towards the end of its troubled existence, and following the end of Norton Commando production in 1977, Norton Villiers Triumph (NVT) began to explore other avenues of business. Development of the promising Norton Rotary continued, while at the other end of the performance scale the company offered the Easy Rider moped. There were also some collaborative ventures with Yamaha, which included developing police-specification versions of the three-cylinder XS750 and a range of off-roaders fitted with the DT175 engine. Currently displaying a total of 3,772 miles on the odometer, this example of the latter is described as in 'good' condition mechanically with 'fair' frame, cycle parts and brightwork. There are no documents with this Lot
Sold for £920 inclusive of Buyer's Premium "
