Before the C652 could go into production something had to be done about its styling, and, before that, about some general components. Whilst the "Ironing Board" used Honda forks and instrumentation and Yamaha SR500 hubs, the production bikes switched to the far superior Paioli forks specially made by Paioli for the project, and BMW F650 hubs. Again the BMW airbox- in slightly modified form.- was used, and the seat rounded and, through that modification, mounted slightly lower.
Dave Pearce of Tigcraft named Adam White as a designer with an affinity to motorcycles, and as one he had cooperated with in other projects. Adam redesigned petrol tank and seat of the 652; the front was changed anyway, the rather over-engineered Paioli front fork resulting in never-before-seen stability in the front end, combined with the flickability of the rest of the chassis. Was it not for the still too great seat height it was the perfect motorcycle for girls, being very light and giving a very reasuring feedback.
The picture above shows our first production bikes with the "pre-production" one on the left. It is the only one with the light grey/grey seat- for production bikes we used the more practical dark grey/black one. Still even the pre-production idea was better than the orange Adam White had suggested!
