Scene in Paris. Norton 850 Commando... "Supposed" in Paris! Lieux de tournage: Israel, Québec et Hongrie. Pas une scène réellement tournée à Paris. D'où les plaques d'immatriculation ultra-fausses, et ceertains modèles de voitures maquillés ou aux normes US! oui, "supposed" car la moitié des types sur la terrasse du café ont la moustache et l'autre porte un béret. Bref, tout est très naturel... Je me disais aussi Dans toutes ces vues "parisiennes" contemporaines, il y avait des détails qui clochaient à commencer dans la même image que la Vespacar deux R4, une 2CV, une Estafette et une DS! En fait ce scène se passe dans les années 1970. Oups Autant pour moi Désolé
Norton Commando 850 Mk 2 as built in 1973 and 1974
Commando? Yes, would say 1972+ Commando 750 (small tank, only front disk brake). From looking at the square tail light this is a 1973-4 850 Commando. From the picture posted by Jale it's definitely an 850. This image is from the opening scene of Rabid, one of my favorite bad movies of all time. You are looking at the late, great Marilyn Chambers dressed in tight fitting black leather. The bike is wrecked at the beginning of the movie and is seen in pieces later in the film. I won't say how they deal with her at the end of the movie - watch it!

Writing looks like Commando 850 LT - does that make sense?? with LT beeing the hook of big C in Commando https://www.flickr.com/photos/30311970@N07/7476346328/ Nice link. So it's the Greater Manchester Police Museum. No doubt a wonderful museum to visit, but do they put useful information online about their cars and bikes? No.
