Well I think you should buy it Chris.  Trip up to Yorkshire for the auction to alleviate the cabin fever!  We’d be up for that..

Were I more solvent, I'd bid for it on-line. Unfortunately, my accountant is also in the(covid 19) high risk bracket and has self isolated me!

Possibly one for you Brian? Tempted to chop in the Norge. Sounds great if you can ignore the mechanical noise of old British bikes! It's funny, I don't remember them making that much clatter when they were young.....

I did thousands of miles on my Commandos. Had the first privately owned on in England I think. That was a Fastback - in red, so it must have been fast.LOL

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

I had the first service done (900 miles) 6 days after picking it up. Then did a trip to Scandinavia. Did over 20k miles in the first year.
Wasn't without its problems though, bent frames tubes on the centre stand mount caused a big problem. I was the one who pointed it out to the factory. They changed the frame design then and mounted the stand on the engine plates.
Front 2LS brake was not good, I ended up fitting a Norvil disc, amazing by comparison. Then the bike got nicked.
